Product Description:
Born Musicians: Traditional Music from the Gambia. Traveling from the remote villages of the Upper River Division to the nation’s capital, Banjul, this program focuses on the music of the Mandinkas and their jalis, the society’s hereditary professional musicians. Displaying the delicate beauty of such instruments as the 21-string harp-lute and the xylophone and the powerfully expressive singing of the instrumentalists’ wives, Gambian music is presented as an essential part of ceremonial occasions. Performers include The Kanute Family, Momadu Camara, Aamadu Jeebaate, and Mawdo Suusoo. (60 minutes)
