Kantara Sakho demonstrates a rootsy rendition of Sunu under a tree with his baye fall apprentice in Malicounda, near Mbour, Senegal.
We like this video because:
- Kantara is originally from Kaarta, and so is this rhythm.
- He uses a lot of basses in the rhythm. This is typical of oldstyle Sunu. There’s actually a dundun part for Sunu that lines up with these basses, too.
Kantara plays around with an important Sunu phrase that Abdoul Doumbiya calls “the ancient call for Sunu”. One example is at 3:19 in the video.[/su_tab]
