Just curious as to what species of bird do you use for your picture of dibon...

A Dibon is the Northern Ground Hornbill (Bucorvus abyssinicus):

Cool, I've always wondered what specific species Dibon referred to. Thanks! -Brian

That is one very funky looking bird that definitely deserves its own rhythm! (hijacking continued)

The concept of the one is comparable to what key the music is in.
It is a reference point. Not everyone hears the music resolve on the same chord but there is an undeniable feeling in every human that recognises this resolution in his/her own way.

I have taken some of the questions of the first postings. This might not be the final version. I might do some little corrections during the next few months or even years (definitions, links, explenations).
I'm sorry for the delay, I started some weeks ago, but after some "break", I only finished it last Saturday. I hope you like it!

Would love to read this, Daniel, but it no longer appears to be available.

Re-post, pls? Thanks!

I find understanding "one" is very helpful as an anchor. Just like Clave, it is grounding especially if you are learning new rhythm. After I am comfortable and understand the rhythm, I do not even think about "where is one?" But I do think for beginners, it is helpful tool.
