Sample text

Just one sekund is acceptable and some believe traditional. Today two sekundy are more common, and often there are many more. The basy plays in tandem with the sekundy and is occasionally supported with a double bass, all sounding on the quarter-note beat (as most typically transcribed and as can be seen in the following figures), changing bow direction with each beat. Together the basy and sekundy produce harmonic ostinatos (repeated bass lines and “chords”), although what they play should not be considered “functional harmony” in the sense of European common practice tonal harmony.

In interviews with me, and in a song text he wrote for a later CD release, he names some of the individual ethnographers surveyed in chapter 3. Trebunia-Tutka knows what others have said and written about Go´rale music-culture, and in a deliberate move to reverse the power imbalances inherent in the relations of those who would represent Go´rale, he has made use of his new access to media and “world beat” music to broadcast his ideas.
