    Repetition of A into Coda

    Section 2 - Schoenberg

    Starts on F and goes down the scale
    Describe the vocal part
    Male - tenor
    Melismatic in some points

    I like the dissonant harmony

    Section 4 - Yiri

    Describe the vocal part
    Balafon plays
    Talking drum
    Two sides
    different areas of drum are hit
    cross rhythms

    Section 4 - Rag desh (fml)

    Vocal thing
    Devotional / relaxed / somber
    No metre
    Rhythmic thing
    Tal / Tala

    Great effort.
    Just be careful with the homophoNic texture - easily mistyped/mispronounced.
