African Dance Song
African Dance Song is based on a drum song and dance style called Bo Bo Bo, which is native to Ghana. Beginning with a two bar repeated pattern for congas, the composer adds layers of additional percussion to establish the rhythmic groove. Simple syncopations and interesting melodic lines make everyone's part fun and interesting. Everything you need for teaching sectional independence is contained in this light and carefree work, which is ideal for introducing African music to your band student.
