This is an attempt to sketch out one of the tunes from the Afro Celts excellent first album (Sound Magic). If you like the Afro Celts, as I do, then I hope my outline is enough to get you started on this deceptive tune, which I assumed was simple until I tried to write it down (hence iIt’s slightly approximate in a couple of places and I haven’t tried to capture their variations). I’m sure that there will be a few purists who don’t consider this (Afro Celts etc) to be proper “traditional” music, but the tune at the heart of this track is definitely a conventional reel in structure.
