User notes for this item
African Harmony; *While the words are in english and their is no need to use parallelism for the sake of intelligibility of the words, the chorus sings using homophonic parallelism. *Similar chorus renditions using european harmonic processes use 3rds and triad based movements. yet in this song the chorus singers uses parallel 4ths and 5ths. *this indictates the clear and delibarte retention and usage of traditional african systems of harmnization using homphonic parallelism, parallel dyads and so forth.
