    Mapaseka's Watermelons....A traditional Kwaito piece.

    Hey guys.
    I was in the mood again to play something more traditional...
    It's a 30 sec piece Titled Mapaseka's watermelons.
    It's more of an African fusion piece....But the chords and notes are very Traditional

    Mapaseka is a female Sotho name and it's pronounced Mah-Pah-Seh(e as in "Bed")-Kah.
    It's my favourite Sotho name.
    And no....the watermelons aren't boobs....Actual watermelons....lol...

    Enjoy!!!

    Yup...
    Along with Jabb, an electric guitar and a different drumkit from a different lib.
    Thanks again for the Kalimba by the way.

    In 30 seconds you have instantly earned my admiration - very well done!!

    Big thanks to Randy for sharing the Kalimba too! I was fiddling with it last night, I'm afraid trying to perform Baroque on it was not a good idea!

    Nice job on this - feels like it has both wings and legs and already has the watermelons in place!

    Very cool. The Kalimba sounds great in there. Aside from the melody, it adds a nice organic touch and some spatial dimension/depth perception.

    Thank you so much sd!
    I really cant wait to show you guys some traditional Zulu Impi music....
    Unfortunately there is no library yet to accomplish that.

    I'm really tempted to sample some of my Kalbas shakers and drums...
    Oooh yes....one of my favourites. gumboots with stringed bottlecaps...Glorious sound.
    I also still have my pennywhistle somewhere.lol

    Anyhoo....thanks again. Appreciate it ALOT!
