I have a social studies project where i have to take an ancient piece of music from either China, Japan, Africa, Rome, Greece, Latin America, or the Middle-East and perform it and do an analysis of the composer. Does anybody know any ancient music like this that i can transcribe to classical guitar? Anything with a set melody that i can work around that isn't just Gregorian chants. Thanks

goddamnit i was gonna suggest that

bang a rock on your guitar and chant "ogah gogah ogah gogah", thats the oldest music I can think of.

edit: you could also look up scales used for ethnic music ie. indian music

"Sakura" is a traditional japanese song and i assume pretty darn old. however, i dont think you will be able to find a specific composer for it though. you might ask your teacher if you could analyze the origins of japanese folk music in lieu of talking about a composer.
