Clip 7. Pachelbel African

This is a recording of my first band at Max Stibbe Waldorf School – an example of the kind of musical work I do at the school. Players: Liyabona Ngwenya, Atlegang Hlabane, Petrus Potgieter, Joshua Strydom, Themba Mahlangu (drum), Fortune Elliot Dube (drum).

It is an arrangement of Pachelbel’s Cannon – written by the 17th century composer Johann Pachelbel – which I arranged for four African marimbas and two African drums. I post-recorded the violin parts. It isn’t perfect, but I personally like the distortion because it has energy that reflects the power of their live performances.
