Bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik, Jazz Sounds of Africa, song Communication. This entire album, recorded in the early 1960s, is a great example of "cultural diffusion." This song uses traditional African drumming. It demonstrates the communal nature of traditional African societies and the role music played in cementing social bonds. This idea has been carried over into jazz in the form of "call and response."
