Nice, simple but deceptively complex piece.
You conveyed the image of Africa in my mind's eye!
Excellent composition. Liked the "drums" and the strings throughout.
You are so talented!

    Thanks for your appreciation. I thought hard about the instrumentation here.

Excellent composition. The title really fits the composition. The instrument selection is excellent and the composition is a great example of how music doesn't have to be extremely complicated to be entertaining. The violins are excellent and the orchestrated parts fit well.

Very creative work.

Excellent work , jungle style drums , showcasing a quieter side of Africa , as opposed to the survival of the fittest as normally portrayed in TV documentaries .

Very simplistic yet complex at the same time, if that makes any sense at all! :) Really loved the instruments you used for this, puts me right there on the African plains in my minds eye. Technically I thought this was rather clever and very well constructed, becoming more intricate as the piece progressed. I have a very good imagination and could picture the scene perfectly, but it may be worth your while, and help others to interpret your visualization if you include a picture also. I think people are more inclined to review if they have also been visually stimulated. A good source for free pictures that you can legally use are available on this website, which I use a lot: https://pixabay.com/en/
I typed Africa into the search bar out of curiosity and quite a selection came up that you might like to use. In case you don't know you can add a picture at any time, even after upload if you click on 'edit' under your music in your portfolio, then on next page just 'Add image from computer' (assuming you have saved the image to your computer first that is) then 'save' and your done. Just a thought, hope you don't mind me making the suggestion?

With very best wishes...Kerri

    Lovely to hear from you, Kerri. Thank you for being so positive and appreciative of what I am trying to do. Thank you, too, for the excellent advice and information. It is very welcome! I will try to act on it for my next piece.

    Oh yes, this picture is fab! Imagery is all important when trying to convey emotions in music. How many times have you heard a contemporary piece of film music on its own and thought little of it, then seen it with the imagery and thought wow! same applies on FM I feel. I just think it helps some people to really see the music through the composer's eyes.

Very addictive intro mate, love those drums..it's just a great tempo. That flute was a pleasant surprise and the way it rifts it funky. Then the strings being coordinated into it with a jamming collaboration back into the keys.. Very tyte Mate..
