MUSIC OF AFRICA DEFINITION CHARACTERISTICS EXAMPLE ( SIYAHAMBA )

PowerPoint Presentation:

DEFINITION African music is a vital part of everyday life in Africa. It is a part of religious ceremonies, festivals, and social rituals. Songs are used for the important events in a person's life (birth, coming of age, marriage, and death). They are used for curing the sick, bringing rain, and religious dances.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Many Africans believe that music serves as a link with the spirit world. Everyone plays an active part in the musical life of the community. Music is ultimately tied to the things that are most important to the welfare of the people.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Melodies are usually short and simple. African music uses short bits of melody that are repeated over and over. Singers or instrumentalists may change them at will, so that the performance becomes a theme with many variations. CHARACTERISTICS

PowerPoint Presentation:

When performing, one person may begin to improvise, or make up a special version of the melody while the other singers continue the original melody. Often, several voices will sing different melodies at the same time.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Africans also sing in rounds. The accompaniment may consist of chords or short melodic patterns that are repeated continually.
