Like a common orchestra, these instruments play in layers and is heavily percussive.
An orchestration usually begins with a prelude which the dancer is introduced.
It is the audible cue to the audience that the dancer is about to come on stage.
At times, they are pretty lengthy ranging up to nearly a whole minute of music.
The music that follows, is often called, a mejance, or 'entrance phrasing' and is
where the dancer enters and greets the audience.
