African Harmony: *Guitar ostinato @ 0:02 uses a rising arrpeggio of sorts and parallel dyads to descend. then the guitat plays chords IV-I. Which is itself the use of parallel dyads over a pedal note. The guitar later in the song switches back to a parallel dyad line. *The use of broken parallel dyads and arrpegios in the flute part inaddition to other linear develop shows awareness of the hamronic procedures. *homophonic parallelism used by chorus. based ons calar source using span process
