Supplementary material: hearing and seeing Griots

Tomorrow, I will be posting my finished independent research paper.

I would like to use this post to post a few visual/audio examples.

This video is a wonderful introduction to the kora, revealing the layers which construct the complex, almost hypnotic nature of the final sound.

this particular example of the balafon shows similarities with the musical qualities of the traditionally played kora.

As cheesy as the illustrations and voice-over are, the first 50 seconds of this show the vocals and instrumentals to the actual epic itself.
