Exploring World Music - Australia

Good morning, Music Explorers! Are you wearing your Music Explorer hat? Are you ready to dive into new territory? Last week, we talked about a special genre (style) of music called World Music. It is very different to the music we normally hear on the radio. The instruments, rhythms, melodies and voices (even the purpose behind the music) makes World Music colorful and really interesting. World music is the sound of traditional instruments played in unique ways. World music carries the history and beliefs of a culture. Are you ready to listen carefully for the clues in today's lesson: listening for rhythm, melody, tempo, instrumentation and voice? Today we begin exploring music from one of the oldest cultures on Planet Earth - Australian aboriginal music.
