i'm still trying to grasp what the african accompaniment is on that Stranded Horse track. ...something from burundi?

I finished watching Terence Hill & Bud Spencer's "They Call Me Trinity" DVD a bit ago. It's a Christmasy tradition for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/25/15 9:51pm coelacanth:

Thanks Daniel- i knew that though...i'm wondering about the tongued instrument and the bowed instrument...i'm pretty sure at least the tongued part is a sample from a "field recording".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/25/15 9:51pm Daniel Blumin:

slawooy! Welcome onboard!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/25/15 9:52pm coelacanth:

...maybe "tongue" is the wrong word! ...like an mbira, or a xylophone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/25/15 9:53pm Daniel Blumin:

It's from Senegal, coela. Much of the recording was done there... I'll take a closer looksee after the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/25/15 9:59pm coelacanth:

i found it! a local musician,Boubacar Cissokho,played balafon and fulani violin... so maybe he played a traditional tune.
...sorry. i'm a geek.

I am enjoying this pseudo Floyd thing going on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/25/15 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

Greg, darn...I always liked thinking it was an Ansel Adams reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/25/15 10:30pm JakeGould:

That Pink Floyd cover sent me straight back to obsessively listening to “The Wall” back in the 1980s.

this is Great! ..as was astronomy domine.

@Greg: I thought it was a gardening reference.

It is all of these things and more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/25/15 10:34pm Uncle Michael:

Ansel's Zone 5 is also known as middle gray...or 18% reflectance...according to Ansel, the average reflectance of Caucasian faces.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/25/15 10:34pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Wow, that's way cooler than "the blocks where I am allowed to park my car." I'm gonna start using that instead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/25/15 10:35pm Uncle Michael:

My Christmas present to you.
