Program Notes

Song and Dance is scored for percussion duo in two movements: I. Song of the Metals; II. Dance of the Drums. The first movement features the kalimba accompanied by bells, djembe, shaker, and other small percussion instruments. A recording of birds singing accompanies the entire movement providing a background of nature sounds.

The second movement is in stark contrast with very primal drumming. Interlocking groove-oriented patterns permeate the movement while a conch shell is used as a single-pitch melodic instrument. Both movements are dances, however two very different aesthetics.
