The sounds of nature inspired early humans to imitate those sounds perhaps to lure animals for hunting or to communicate incognito or even to entertain around the primordial hearth. Whatever the reason, human communication was fostered by nature sounds and it was perhaps, integral to the development of music. Birdsongs and wolf howls would lead to human vocalizations and centuries later…songs.

Next time on Influenced we present variations on those original influences.

Songs imitating or using actual sounds of wolves and birds and whales…oh my!

You’ll be surprised and delighted by our upcoming musical menagerie.

Join Abi & Andy on Influenced on Monday, September 25 at midnight, right after the Monday Night Jazz Odyssey.
