Siaka Diabate movie

Postby Dugafola » Wed Jan 06, 2010 7:30 pm

this movie profiles a Senoufo Balafola from Bouake Ivory Coast. Siaka played with Soungalo Coulibaly for 17 years until his passing in 2004.

here's a taste (no Soungalo footage :( ). there's a link to the website to buy the movie on the youtube page proper.

Looks great, thanks for the tip dude!

I've always loved his playing - such a versatile balafola (he also plays dunun and kora). Looks like the DVD has some nice extras:
Interview with Soungalo Coulibaly (9 min)
Soungalo and His Group Playing for a Wedding (10 min)

$50 is steep for a DVD, though... :(
