Burkina Faso - Pays Lobi, Xylophone de Funérailles

Burkina Faso - Pays Lobi, Xylophone de Funérailles

Burkina Faso - «Pays Lobi, Xylophone de Funérailles»
Genre: Folk Africa | MP3 160 Kbps, VBR | Label: Ocora | 91 Mb

A collection of ritual funeral songs from the repertoire of Lobi (also here referring to the Birifor) songs for the jolonbuo (similar to the balafon in many ways). The music is deceptively simple at times, and richly complex at times, sometimes occurring together. Smaller percussion items are added to the music, as is the bembe drum, which is played throughout funeral ceremonies (up to two days straight). For those wishing to learn about the Lobi rituals, this wouldn't be a bad place to start. (AMG)

The beautiful Coumba, however, is still courageously struggling to raise her daughter after the death of her family. Mocktar will soon be fighting not only to survive, but also to provide a better future for this mother and her child.

"Groove" , according to the musicologists, is an understanding of rhythmic patterning or feel and an intuitive sense of a cycle in motion that emerges from carefully aligned concurrent rhythmic patterns that sets in motion dancing or foot-tapping on the part of listeners.

Many hours of rhythmic and uplifting music from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe will put you in a happy dancing mood. Enjoy.

Comment s'aime-t-on aujourd'hui en Afrique quand on a vingt ans, quand on a quarante ans, quand on a soixante ans ? Comment s'exprime le désir, comment s'organise la sexualité, comment se cristallise le noyau familial qui est au centre de toute société ? Ce sont les histoires d'amour, des amoureux et des amoureuses, qui tissent la trame de ce film. En Afrique comme ailleurs, la Saint-Valentin est aujourd'hui l'une des fêtes qui rythment le calendrier social, de la même manière que les télénovelas brésiliennes imprègnent les rêves d'amour de millions d'Africains…

Mamadi, étudiant burkinabé, et Franck, jeune français, travaillent comme gardiens de nuit dans un parking. À travers les écrans du système de télésurveillance, ils découvrent les allers et venues, la prostitution et les trafics de drogue qui se glissent entre les mouvements des voitures. Un soir, Mamadi découvre un colis abandonné, rempli de drogue et d’argent. Avec Franck, ils décident de garder ce magot, mais ils sont vite traqués par les dealers…Ils se cachent un temps chez Franck, puis s’envolent pour Ouagadougou…Dans cette aventure, chacun découvrira le monde de l’autre.

The fertile filmmaking community of Burkina Faso gives birth to another stark, social realist tale with this feature from director Pierre Yameogo. Me and My White Pal concerns the hand-to-mouth existence of Mamadi, an African student studying in France who becomes embroiled with violent gangsters when he intercepts a drug package and attempts to profit from it. While tending to cars in his menial parking-garage job, Mamadi discovers the stash, which his "white pal" persuades him to try to sell. Once he does, the twosome find themselves running all the way back to Burkina Faso to escape the dealers. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide
