'Tonalis' - say what?
Had this word pop up in the Klezmer Modes article by Josh Horowitz & I drew a blank.
Got to thinking maybe I really don't understand what 'Tonality' is. Really hate getting sidetracked, but this seemed important.
So, think I found a good source if, like me, you want to understand more. 😁

yes...the last note is a very strong indication of tonic or mode. along with where "home" feels like...for instance say a tune has a key signature of D but that A note just feels like home or resolved ...especially ending phrase ( speaking trad )... good hint tune may be A mixolydian. hmm an A scale with a flat G note..whats up with that 🤔
