Listen to the sound clips. See if you can guess what culture/tradition they come from. You may even be able to guess the type/form of music. Please write down your thought process. What are the clues? Why might it be from one particular culture? Listen to instruments, form, texture. The right answer is not the goal. What I need to see is your reasoning. You could get full credit even if you guess the wrong culture, provided your reasoning is sound. Complete sentences are not needed; lists are fine.
