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.
One response to “Village Djembe Documentary”
Man… This video is really inspiring. I remember seeing it for the first time in 2008, and thinking to myself: “That’s it. I gotta go to Mali right now!”.
