Samuel Akpabot - Three Nigerian Dances

OxfordMusic

Nigerian-born, Samuel Akpabot studied Western music (organ, trumpet and composition) at the Royal College of Music in London. He later taught and conducted research on the indigenous music of his country at the University of lfe, Nigeria and then continued his ethno-musicological studies in the US. His publications on the subject have gained him a reputation as a major scholar of West African indigenous music.
Several of Akpabot’s compositions juxtapose African and European instruments, while others, like Three Nigerian Dances, use Western instruments only (strings and timpani in this case). The Dances do, however, convey a genuine sense of West African musical characteristics with their use of “call and response” patterns and idiomatic rhythmic motives.
