Singing in tonal languages
When people sing in Mandarin, they usually don’t stick to the tones, but in Cantonese I understand that singers try to incorporate the tones into the tune. According to an interesting blog I came across today, the tones are discarded in Thai when singing.
Does anybody know what happens to tones in other languages when they’re sung?
If any of you are able to sing in a tonal language, don’t be shy! It would interesting to hear a recording.
