Magnificant Sevens

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Diga Rhythm Band

An instrumental on Mickey Hart's Diga Rhyhm Band LP. He gives the following background:

"In a rhythmic cycle of seven of course (counted as 3 + 2 + 2), where the sevens are combined into larger cycles of four beats (each having, therefore, seven pulses or units). This was composed in a more traditional Indian format, with an alap, a slow, improvisatory solo that comes before the drums enter, followed by interplay between all of the players."
