Los Quin Tallu-tallu

Los Quin Tallu-tallu

"Los Quin Tallu-tallu" combines the Mandar genre of sayang-sayang with elements from the los quin genre, found in Jung Pandang. Elements similar to los quin in this song include the tuning typically used for the old los quin melody and the los quin guitar idiom: a steady beat is marked by reiterated chordal tones in the bass, while in the treble an unbroken single-line melody moves four or eight times as fast as the bass, not directly following the vocal melody.
