Thanks for that link. My professor played this clip during a lecture in African-American Music History as an example of improvisation, rhythm and musical culture in contemporary West Africa and how it relates to music here in the states. I always wanted a copy of the recording.

Jackson, did you go to Macalester?

Bob Parkin

Ken,

This is great. Being a stamp collector, I am going to forward this link to all my collecting cohorts.

This is the most requested song ever at Oddio Overplay. Shared this in 2003, because I love it so much. The CDs accompany a text book by Jeff Todd Tilton. Scanned the page. Will try to dig up the scan with info and link it here.

I heard this on the CBC just lately. Sounds like Simon and Garfunkel's "Cecilia", but that was from 1970.

I remember this song from back in college... 2002!

When I heard it I showed my entire family and they loved it. My brother and I sometimes whistle the tune and harmony. It's been 10 years and we still haven't forgotten :)

Now if only I could find the Andean Pan Pipe music from that cd!
