yea kid. That's bolo. you'll notice that the kawa in the red jacket cuts bouba off and makes Bolo solo for him around the 6:25 mark. i got TONS of kawa stories/history from bolo. probably the favorite rhythm in my household.
bolo worked with an old Kawa known as Bob and traveled all around sankaran. Bob's father was a huge kawa in sankaran named biriba yose keira from Laya Doula. Bob had 2 other sons all initiated into the medicine and dance of kawa. i visited Laya Doula in 2007/08 and stayed a few days there. Bolo's first wife is from that village. bob died in the early 2000s but facelly and khaly are still around and can be seen in a lot of the footage that's circulating.
bolo told me the kawa in costume was sick during this fete which is why he wasn't dancing that strong. i have the names both of the kawas at my house...i'll update later.
should i shave my moustache?
