Music plays a role in the cultural and social interactions of several different groups in Erfworld. Several different sides have been shown singing and playing various musical instruments, including at least two types of horns. Erf-b1-p007 Erf-b1-p094
Music also plays a role in coordinating troops in battle during dance-fighting. For instance, in the Battle for Gobwin Knob, units that were engaged in dance-fighting either performed their own songs, as in the case of TransylvitoErf-b1-p111, or music was generated magically, as was the case when Charlie's Archons created a beat for the Royal Crown Coalition forces to follow in the courtyard of Gobwin Knob.Erf-b1-p128
