Bobby McFerrin Creates Music with the Pentatonic Scale


Crowd participation never sounded so good.

Bobby McFerrin, the 10-time Grammy Award Winner, participated in a panel during the 2009 World Science Festival in New York City on “Note Neurons: In Search of the Common Chorus”.  During this panel McFerrin showed how powerful the pentatonic scale can be by creating music with the audience. 

Side note:  the pentatonic scale is a musical scale that uses five pitches per octave rather than a major scale that uses seven.
