5ED Entertainment for the Pharaoh

This is music for dancing. It begins with a plucked string ostinato pattern before a percussion dance rhythm enters on cymbals, tambourines and bells. The main melody then comes in. This is divided between the wind section and ukuleles. The recorders play a ‘question’ phrase and the ukuleles play the ‘answer’.  Then a new syncopated tune comes in before we return to the opening idea and the piece ends with a sustained cymbals crash.
