Actually there are some very interesting street names… we thought we would share some of those with our readers.

In fact, The opening lyrics of “The Circle of Life” are lines translated into and sung in A REAL LANGUAGE; one that is spoken by over 10 million people, including 95% of South Africa. The opening of “The Circle of Life” is in Zulu, the language of the Zulu people. This inspired us to research further into the lyrics being sung:

Nants ingonyama bagithi baba

sabor1127991 7311 Obbligato: 

This listing by Parisa Sanchez is a beautiful home in the Rolling Meadows subdivision has an unusual name after a classical music term. Obbligato usually describes a musical line that is in some way indispensable in performance. It can also be used, more specifically, to indicate that a passage of music was to be played exactly as written, or only by the specified instrument, without changes or omissions.

Obbligato includes the idea of independence, as in C.P.E. Bach‘s 1780 Symphonies “mit zwölf obligaten Stimmen” (“with twelve obbligato parts”) by which Bach was referring to the independent woodwind parts he was using for the first time. These parts were also obbligato in the sense of being indispensable.
