Klezmer del Mar for flute, viola and guitar


A tongue in cheek combination of English sea shanty and Jewish scales, with a bit of Klezmer,
a hint of Spanish flamenco and a large helping of English folksong.
The tunes used are:
What shall we do with the drunken sailor
Johnny Todd,
Hava Nagila
and various connecting melodic lines.
The mode sways between typical middle-Eastern scales and
the Dorian mode (the original mode of the drunken sailor song).
