Musical Transcriptions and Analysis

This appendix consists of transcriptions (with figure-by-figure explanations) that are meant to elucidate various musical styles and songs discussed in the body of the dissertation. These are supplemented with charts that show musical influences in mangue. Figures that present the basic rhythm of a particular style (e.g., baiiio, coco de roda, etc.) are meant as prototypical only. There may be many different patterns allowable for some styles; in such cases, the patterns I feature here were selected based on my experience with these musics. Furthermore, such charts obviously cannot account for the rhythmic variations inherent in such musics. Where appropriate, I have indicated with whom or where I learned specific musical styles or information.
