It sounds like a good flute tune, so I've transcribed it, and will send it to Joe. Check back here for a MIDI. Then perhaps some kind soul will provide an ABC file of it.
Please note: Joe could be out of town or something, so don't get discouraged if the MIDI doesn't show up immediately. The timing may not be perfect, so feel free to modify it to make it sound right to you.
On the YouTube recording, the singer is singing in the key of A. That's too low for some instruments, so I wrote it out in A, put in a modulation (played by a kindly African who wandered past with his kalimba) and then wrote it again in the key of D. The tune has a big range of an octave and a fourth (low A to high D on the video.)
Now to send the MIDI to Joe...
