African Melodies

Discussion in 'Music' started by lemonthelime, Jul 13, 2015.

  1. I'm in the middle of planning an African music unit. I would like the students to compose melodic ostinato as part of their work.

    IS there a particular scale or set of notes associated with West African music? A short amount of research suggests a pentatonic scale - is this correct and which notes would you use to form a pentatonic - C D E G A?



    Thanks
