“Culture” brings out the current rhythms of West Africa that have inspired musical styles and movements around the world for centuries, and it’s easy to see why. Perfect for large ensembles or percussion-heavy groups, driving poly- and cross-rhythms offer a playground ready-made for an ensemble of mixed levels. The talking drum tradition of Ghana is on full display, and a simple harmonic structure is highly accessible to students new to improvisation. Students familiar with jazz and Latin music will find familiar rhythms, and the vocally-inspired melody will be quick to learn for all. There’s plenty of space to stretch out and feature multiple soloists with backgrounds that are student-led and full of possibilities.
