The African continent has a rich history of musical cultures and traditions. As usual, we can only study a minute part of the culture.
Choose one of the videos of traditional African music (rather than contemporary) in the chapter from which you can apply THREE of the items from the “General Characteristics of African Music” located in your text. As best as possible, choose a different video from your fellow students.
1. Give us the name of the video and then discuss how 3 of those general characteristics are present in the video.
use your Textbook as a source.
2. Choose a musical experience from your culture that uses any of those characteristics and describe how they apply. Remember to remind us of what culture you are from and name the style of music or the song.
