What are the earliest tunes or songs? Most early stuff seems to be 16C, I think.

Was no music passed on in written or symbolic form from Africa, Greece, Rome, Viking, Chinese, Indian, pre-columbian American people. What about the Inuit, did they have any stories, tunes or songs?

Surely good tunes must go back as far as speech, even if we can't retrieve them.
