Hello steemians, I bring to you a traditional African folk song in the Efik/Ibibio language of Southern Nigeria recorded by me. Below is an embedded SoundCloud link and also available on choon.


Even though majority of African melodies are polyphonic in texture, African music also makes use of homophonic and heterophonic textures, though not extensively. This song has strong elements of homophony as there is a steady note-to-note accompaniment by the harmonic section. Also, this song is very much antiphonal as there is a solo and response throughout the entire song. The lead singer calls and the rest responds.”

I hope you love it.
