¡Hola gente increíble en Afri-tunes! Les doy la bienvenida una vez más a la semana 29 de nuestras celebraciones semanales de música africana. ¡Quiero usar este medio para agradecer a @ksam, el fundador de esta comunidad y sus colaboradores más cercanos e infatigables @starstrings01 y @obaro! ¡Más gracia para ustedes!

This week I bring you a unique Afro - representation or application of a beautiful and popular classical piece by Johann PACHELBEL titled Cannon in D
In other words, if Johann PACHELBEL was an African composer, cannon in D would have been like what I have for you today in the video. 😂

I must confess, the progression of the original piece is quite peaceful and spurs some kind of reflective mood to anyone listening to it. Personally I meditate with it at some points. In short, it helps me relax. Although it sounds as though it is slow in its tempo, it is not quite slow when you try to play the notes on a piano because of the many quick notes that make up the song. (I am sure that talented Pianists like @mipiano can relate to what I am saying about the tempo of cannon in d).

Esta semana les traigo una representación o aplicación afro única de una hermosa y popular pieza clásica de Johann PACHELBEL titulada Cannon in D
En otras palabras, si Johann PACHELBEL fuera un compositor africano, el cañón en D hubiera sido como el que les tengo hoy en el video. 😂

Debo confesar que la progresión de la pieza original es bastante pacífica y estimula una especie de estado de ánimo reflexivo para cualquiera que la escuche. Personalmente medito con ella en algunos puntos. En resumen, me ayuda a relajarme. Aunque suena como si fuera lento en su tempo, no es tan lento cuando tratas de tocar las notas en un piano debido a las muchas notas rápidas que componen la canción. (Estoy seguro de que los pianistas talentosos como @mipiano pueden relacionarse con lo que digo sobre el tempo del cañón en re).

On the other hand, the way I played it, gave it an African rythm and vibe, hence, one could almost start dancing to it. That is very typical of many African songs. I tried to give it a unique afro feel, yet somehow maintain the original melody. One can easily tell that it is cannon in d although played differently.

I really hope you enjoy it, let me know how you see it in the comment section

Por otro lado, la forma en que la toqué le dio un ritmo y una vibra africanos, por lo que uno casi podría comenzar a bailar con ella. Eso es muy típico de muchas canciones africanas. Traté de darle una sensación afro única, pero de alguna manera mantuve la melodía original. Uno puede decir fácilmente que es un cañón en d aunque se juega de manera diferente.

Realmente espero que lo disfruten, háganme saber cómo lo ven en la sección de comentarios

Here is the link to the Original version as played by Jacobs piano on youtube
