dc.description.abstractThis chapter explores the nature of musical 'disagreements' in a performance of the Kungka Kutjara (Two Women) performed by Antikirinya women and men at Oodnadatta in 1966, recorded by Catherine Ellis. Although unisonic performance is preferred in most Central Australian singing, varying degrees of divergence can be heard, generally resulting from a lack of synchronicity in presenting the melodic contour. In the performance in question, it appears that the women and men singers apply different principles in setting the rhythmic text to the melody.en_AU
