Francesca Mainiero MUS 106 Section 1 Extra Credit: Chapter 2 1. What is some important way that the musical traditions of Africa and Europe are different? There are many important differences between the musical traditions of Africa and Europe. For instance, African music uses polyrhythmic music that is too complex to be written down, while European music uses a standard music notation, which allows them to write all their music. Also, African music uses a five note pentatonic scale, while European music uses a seven note pentatonic scale. 2. In what ways was the performance of traditional African music changed when Africans were brought to the New World as slaves? One change in African performances was the growing emphasis on singing for musical expression when drums were banned in some slave colonies. Also, work songs shifted from inspirational songs about working to better one’s life, to songs about struggle and pain. The influence of Christian churches introduced traditional European harmony to the slaves. This lead to the birth of spiritual music, which was a mix of European hymns and African performance techniques.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
