Example text

Tosk traditional music with instrumental accompaniment tends to be more organized melodically and harmonically, and measurable metrically/rhythmically. When present, instruments have adapted to Tosk songs’ musical features without compromising their distinctiveness and aesthetic value. Notable Musical Sub-Dialects As previously mentioned, the Tosk dialect is composed of the Tosk, Myzeqar, and Cham sub-dialects. All of these musics have virtually identical cultural roles in their respective regions of Southern Albania, being performed at a variety of different occasions, including weddings, holidays, family gatherings, and social gatherings.

Meter/rhythm is either half or entirely free. The following is a translation from a particular song of “call to action,” entitled “The Eagle Pledged Its Word”: The eagle6 pledged its word, Our land we won’t sell, High stand our ideals, Our land, may you live as long as the mountains! Songs of “call to action” are performed by men only, usually by one singer. In some instances there are two or more performers, who use the call and response technique. Here the singers alternate melodic lines, thus responding to one another.

Within these regions there are substantial further subdivisions in musical features. The term style is reserved for the most fundamental subdivisions in this book, so the music generally found in Toskëri, Myzeqe, and Chamëri will be referred to as a sub-dialect. Discussion of the musical styles found within the Tosk, Myzeqar, and Cham sub-dialects is beyond the scope of this book. Fundamental Features The most important unifying features found throughout all variations of the Tosk musical dialect are: • • • • • • largely polyphonic structure; developed melody; pentatonic modal/tonal system; imitative melodic lines; either free or measurable meter/rhythm; and lack of instrumental accompaniment.
