Sunu : Karim Coulibaly

Karim Coulibaly (Featured as a guest soloist on Sega Sidibe’s most recent release) and another guy (possibly Sheik Oumar Traore) play Sunu in Bamako. 

The first guy plays his solo mostly with tones and closed slaps, just like they do in Kaarta, the area Sunu comes from.

We like this video because:

  • There are no dununs played in this video. You can hear the djembes clearly, and it makes Sunu sound more authentic with no bells.
  • The bass djembe soloing sounds sweet!
  • There’s a tad of Active Accompaniment playing in this video.
  • Karim’s group “Siguidiya Percussions” like to keep it fairly old school.
