Aren't those rich, beautiful words? Isn't this rich, beautiful music?
We'll be spending one more week studying Sub-Saharan African music in my fantastic World Music class at ARC. We've mimicked African polyrhythms; clapping different beats simultaneously to achieve the famed layered texture. We've listened to chants, pygmies' songs, talking drums, gourd xylophones and watched traditional African dances. It's incredible!
I love African music. I love the deep tones, the rich, vibrant spirit. The freedom. The colors of fierce loyalty.
