There’s something about African music (old and new) that pulls me in. I adore it.
My theory is that it has something to do about tonality, but I should really do a little research before I pontificate online. In the meantime, here are three dances by Rwandan folk troupes:
This last one is my favorite. The dancers project such a sense of peace and serenity.
I haven’t listened to Rwandan music before: like the dances, it’s slow and dignified and minimal. So beautiful. I love how dramatic the dances are, and also the overlap in roles: some musicians are dancers, and vice versa.
