    Question Styles of music

    I am not an expert on music, as you will see by my question.
    I love a particular piece by Villa-Lobos,
    Bachianas Brasileiras No 5.
    The first part is what I would call "singing without words".
    I am sure there must be a proper name for the "singing without words" style.
    So my question is what is that proper name?

    I'd call it "cantabile".

    I’d have called it vocalise.
