Hey All! I am going to start rehearsing for a play based on Nigerian folklore that is to be played in Detroit, MI next year. It is gonna be a pretty big production! Anyways, I need to start learning some world music stuff. The director sent me some examples of some nigerian music.

1) Oliver De Coque

2)Robert Ebizimo

3) Osita Osadebe

4) Barrister Smooth

Its gonna have a modern sound to it though as it is our own interpretation of african folklore. Anyways, what are some scales that this music uses? Also, anyone have any resources to direct me to for learning world music?
