nice ballet version of djole. at 3:15 you can hear a trad yole song from sierra leone, complete with yoruba lyrics (from ode or hunting society), although the pronunciation isn't 100% (guineans). the first song they do is actually a popular wolof children's song that for some reason has been associated with the rhythm. the photos shown come from different parts of africa.

We're playing this at the West African Dance class at UF this semester. Your video was very helpful for practice, thanks for posting!

You've lost me there, I wasn't aware that Yoruba was a Leonean ethnic group..

hi paul. yes, there was a yoruba migration to sierra leone (during the 18th century and tied in with the slave trade), hence the yoruba influence in krio language and customs and this is very apparent in the ode (hunting) society (btw, ode is a yoruba word). there is a part of freetown called foura bay that is dominated by aku (those of yoruba descent) where this influence is most pervasive. for a historical account i would recommend sierra leone and its people by bankole kamara taylor, the krio of sierra leone: an interpretive history by akintola wyse.
