Proud, thoughtful, filmic. Beautiful, mysterious and rhythmic. Super gentle African percussion, elegant piano, bass, strings and contemporary drums. Distant African voices, haunting sounds. A sense of greatness, beautiful open skies. Cinematic travel show, safari, natives in fields, adventure ahead, Instrumental, African, African Pop
This tension cue is perfect for documentaries or reality TV. A suspenseful groove from the drums and bass drive this track. Mixed percussion and synths keep the track moving. This track is ominous and dark and works well for elimination or even a darker corporate sound. Instrumental, African, Congo
