It’s Mokale Koapeng again. I hope this email finds you well. It has been a long time not talking. I am currently teaching a composition model for our 3rd year composition students called African Composition Resources. I am looking for scores by composers whose works incorporate indigenous African music techniques. This is a great way of getting the music of composers known to composition students.
Warm regards and God’s blessings
