"Griot music accompanied on the delicate dambararou lute, ritual songs of therapeutic possession accompanied on the gogué fiddle to the rhythm of gon and karou drums, and a boldly dynamic women's choir -- different aspects of Bariba traditional music from the descendants of a kingdom established in the 15th century, and long reputed for its fierce resistance to exterior domination." Deluxe oversized hardbound packaging.
