English Wikipedia has an article on:

A monad is a chord of one pitch class. Monads occur in the traditional gyil music of west Aftrica, which are tuned roughly equipentatonic. Numbering the pitches arbitrarily 1 through 5, a common chord progression alternates between dyads 1–4 and 2–5, with the 3 monad frequently interspersed at regular intervals. Examples: Gyil C, Gyil D.
