African Moods composed by Jorg Franke. Edited by Sponsel. For 6 Percussion. World Beat - Ethno Percussion Music. Modern. Sheet Music. Published by Zimmermann (PE.ZM32140).
African Moods is the first edition of a new series bearing the title "World Beat - Ethno Percussion Music", issued by Joachim Sponsel. Jorg Franke, the composer, is a percussion teacher at the music school in Frankfurt am Main. He composed this piece for his ensemble. It has been arranged for six players who will need the following instruments: African bell (Double bell) or 2 cowbells, maracas, shekere, 2 djembe (or conga) , solo djembe, 2 tom toms in 10" and 12", ankle bells and a bass drum size 20" to 22" plus one marimba which carries the melody. An additional effect is achieved by the hand clap. "African Moods" is a result of the occupation with the music of West and Central Africa. It would be an advantage to use original instruments, but other instruments can be used as well. The score as been notated in full, and some skips were added. This piece makes use of the full tonal range of the individual instruments. The sections are marked by different tone colors. This piece is well- suited for advanced ensembles especially at music schools.
