Bones

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Hart, Hussain, Olatunje, Purim

An instrumental on Mickey Hart's "Planet Drum" CD. He gives the following background:

This song is based on a rhythm I played on the balafon, using bones as mallets. The rest of the ensemble added their own sounds. The use of bones, especially human bones, exhibits a relationship between percussion and ritual. Hitting one bone against another, or using bones on drums instead of sticks has an influence on the sound produced, and on the person who produces it.
