User notes for this item
African Harmony: *Parallel dyad lines on guitar *inherent pattern between parallel dyads on guitar and bass ostinato/phrase. *homophonic parallelism using the span process on a diatonic scalar source. *use of suspended 4th interval at the end of the vocal chorus. Applying african techniques of parallelism until the last conceivable moment where resolution was required at repose. African melody: *melodic line starts high and descends
