Filed under: Uncategorized — by accessahut @ 10:19 am

There is a bird here that calls “do, da, dah, do, dah”–in exactly the same cadence and tone as the bump.  And two of them will harmonize, one taking the descant (or do I mean descent?)   So the basic beat of all african music and most hip hop is this bird. Weird.
