Village Djembe Documentary

The short documentary by Jeremy Chevrier of Rootsyrecords features Sega Cisse and other villagers from the area of Fuladugu, west of Bamako.

There are a lot of familiar rhythms and dances featured in this video, and it’s nice to see footage of them from Fuladugu in contrast to Bamako.

  • Some of the antics are fun to watch. We like at 2:08 when the woman uses the other lady’s head cloth to wipe the drummer’s sweat and then throws it on the ground.
