Serengeti

Artist Name: Victor Orlando
Genre: African Jazz
Style: Afro-Cuban 6/8

Degree of Challenge (DofC):

Challenge Avg. : 2.7
Melody : 2.5
Harmony : 2.5
Rhythm : 3.0
Key : D minor

Highest Melody Note : Ab5

“Serengeti” is a blast of a tune with an intense Afro-Cuban 6-8 feel and a strong melody. At its core, it is essentially a C-minor blues very reminiscent of the jazz standard “Footprints” by Wayne Shorter. This chart is fun to play, especially when your rhythm section achieves the essence of the groove. From there the sky’s the limit for interaction and communication between players on the solo section, with endless possibilities for exotic percussion instruments and sounds mixed in.
