about

This tune, written by Mark, was originally intended to be something of a drunken waltz. A kwakumba (variously named) is a highlands PNG bamboo flute with a single blowing hole and an open end. Mark’s initial recording of this piece is heard on his solo CD, Reeds and features this flute - hence this tune’s name – and a bullhorn recorder, called a gemshorn. On this version, the gemshorn opens the piece solo and is joined by guitar and Kristiina scatting the vocal melody. The tune gradually morphs into a jazz waltz as soprano sax joins.
