The Dances were clearly intended as a vehicle for the violin and exploit both its lyrical and virtuosic qualities. Surprisingly, the music does not sound at all African but rather is written in the traditional tonal and melodic language of the late Romantic era. However, Coleridge-Taylor did note, without giving any specifics, in the manuscript that the second dance was based on a traditional African folk melody.
