@ Manhattan Childrens Museum - Holiday concert December 2014
Here we are showcasing and arranging the African song Betelehemu, ('towards Beit-Lehem') a holiday song from Nigeria.
We are introducing structural concepts of 4/4 counting, alternating between full bars of rhythms and silence bars allowing the interaction between playing and stopping, along interesting vocal syncopation that is built in the original song and augmented in this jazzy arrangement of it.
