Listen to "Young Thunder" drum group. Notice the unison and call and response form of the songs. Jason Chamakese plays the Native American flute.

Great drummers and singers. Can you decide who is the vocal leader? Why does the singer sometimes hold his throat? Do women sing? How do they know when to stop? Do you hear the strong beats where everyone beat the strong beat together? What would happen if one person did not stop with the other drummers. Would you call this a "call and response" pattern? Maybe someone can answer these questions.
