comment A (440 Hz) and A (880 Hz) are completely different sounds to me. Does this mean I'm tone deaf?
Note the disclaimer "pretty much every human", you may be in the minority of people who don't (easily) identify octaves as equivalent. I haven't been able to find any studies on how rare this is. Since no one else can get inside your head it is hard to tell if this is tone deafness (color analogy: everything is sort of grey) or super-acuity in pitch perception, or something more complicated, and not easily described on a deafness<->acuity scale.

@topomorto Your comment on another answer, to the effect that "universal across cultures" is not the same as "universal across people" is an important point that might be worth incorporating.

I don't find your description of "continues riffing" as accurate; What I hear is melisma on the final vocal note. "Continues riffing" implies to me multiple iterations of a phrase (with/without variations).

The OP's note of "continues riffing" isn't really accurate in this case. Despite the comment, the vocals is just a single, highly decorated, note. If there was more extensive music, I'd agree with you.

comment Creating conga part in lilypond
Partway down this page lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/notation/… is a "congas-style" section. Note that if you click on the notation you will be provided with the lilypond source that produced that notation.

comment How do I to calculate note's frequency using no intervals?
@DmitryParzhitsky the content of your comment to NReiling (about Objects and whatnot) indicates to me that you are trying to solve a problem that is not laid out in the body of this question -- what are the constraints that prevent you from just doing the math laid out in this question? They should be in there.
