User notes for this item
African Harmony: *the fiddles main melody uses inherent patterning. The melodic jump more than a 4th in the melody creates the effect of their being two melodies in alternations. *when the second fiddle plays the inherent pattern it plaus unison on the upper voices and uses parallel dyads for the second part.
