Our first concert of the tour was in Hyderabad, India at the Taj Krishna. We began the concert with a song titled “Initiation Song” which is an adaptation of an Australian Aboriginal Wongga tribal melody that is used to initiate secular ceremonies. The original melody (voice) is accompanied by didgeridoo and clapsticks. I harmonized the melody and then added a bridge, interlude and a variation of the melody in the mixolydian mode.
The concert was a great success. I will post some more videos soon. Enjoy!
