Welcome to Afrikosmos: 75 progressive African piano pieces, for all ages and all levels, to buy and download from this site.
South African composer Michael Blake has been creating these characteristically African pieces over the past 5 years. The project was started in the Italian town of Bellagio in June 2015 at the Rockefeller Writers Centre, whose contribution is gratefully acknowledged.
If you click on a volume and then a piece, you’ll be able to read a little about it, view an extract from the score and listen to a midi recording, and if it’s just what you’re looking for, you’ll be able to buy your copy immediately using Paypal and downloading the pdf file. Every item is affordably priced, starting at €0.99 for a piece. Or you can buy a complete volume for only €10.
You can download the Complete Catalogue here.
Bardic Edition has published the six complete volumes and these are now available from Goodmusic Publishing UK http://www.goodmusicpublishing.co.uk
