Orff in Pop Culture: Layered Ostinati
I recently ran across a great video on YouTube…Jimmy Fallon and Billy Joel singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” on The Tonight Show. As this impromptu duo records the vocal accompaniment into the iPad app, I couldn’t help but realize that this was Orff in action! These two were recording layered vocal ostinati as an accompaniment to their singing! There are so many examples of the Orff approach in pop culture, but do we notice them?
