“Zulu music transcribed for wind quintet? Why not!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

Joseph Shabalala may not be a familiar name to European flute players but Ladysmith Black Mambazo is world famous!  To have an arrangement of one of their numbers for wind quintet is amazing! 'There's Money' says the title so this is an energtic and happy piece. After a free opening in which the horn has the calls, the rhythms of the song are faithfully adhered to and as these follow the vocal line they can be quite complex. It's rhythmic unity across the parts though, and the safety in numbers gives the arrangement real strength. Zulu music for wind quintet/? Why not - it's great!
