Nice work! posting Video clip of Koreduga clown procession. Ok.. that Video is in 5 FIVE! Time signature rhythm...
MamadyKeita recorded a 9 NINE! Time signature Komodenu for their Wassolo masterpiece album.. intricate stuff!
With all folk culture there is so much regional variation and various modes within any given ritual activity,
which the music reflects... So there's never just one way to play Koreduga or any other traditional rhythm too.
For Web seekers.. Here's an extensive "WAP" (W.AFrPercuss ) Data Base PDF of 126! Djembe Rhythms. Intriguing

but the best understanding comes direct from the horses cultural mouth, not from it's interpreters.. like me! ha ha...
Hey great job! on Video posting Koreduga Clown Dance.. picture's worth a thousand words.. so thanks!
PS. there is definately something deeep magical about playing Mamady style 9/3 Komodenu
it rolls along like a kids MerryGoRound.. Cosmic Clowns..
