Music - Oriental Bossa Nova

Oriental Bossa Nova

This song is built on a latin bossa nova rhythm but the melody lines are oriental.

The key of the song is D and the scale is Double Harmonic Major also known as Arabic or Byzantine scale. Normally music in this scale is not harmonized in the traditional western style so it was a challenge doing it anyway.

Instrumentation is also a bit of a mix. There are acoustic instruments like nylon string acoustic guitar, a bass, drums, and strings. And this is all mixed with melodies played by very synthetic instruments.

It has been a piece I have worked on for many weeks. It started with building on an earlier published latin piece. But I soon got the idea to make it oriental. I kept the bass line from the old song but changed its scale to double harmonic.

I hope you enjoy this funny latin jazz world piece.
