    Who has the rhythm of this song?

    • Hi Sara! For the most part, the rhythm happens in the low reeds and/or brass. Around 0:48, when the low brass has the melody, the medium voices take over the rhythmic element for a bit.

      The percussion mostly acts as melody and sound effects instead of keeping the beat like what would happen in a march.

      Does this answer your question? If not, please write back and let me know!
