"MamaKat" has only been playing Taiko for a little over a year, but she has played many different kinds of percussion most of her life. She has five kids, (two human, three feline) and is currently pursuing a degree in music and art therapy. Kat has been involved in performing arts for over a quarter of a century, as a singer, director, producer, actor, dancer, choreographer, stage manager and costumer, but considers drumming the true love of her life.
Drum sound rises on the air, its throb, my heart. A voice inside the beat says, "I know you're tired, but come. This is the way."
