Tamako / Orodara Sidiki

T Tamako (as the rhythm of the balafonpiece Orodara Sidiki should actually be called) (Burkina Faso origin) is the music that is played when the king arrives in a town or village. He marches to the rhythm of the music. It enters the village and people sing to him that he marches so nicely to the rhythm. After this, the following songs are traditionally used: ‘Famade’ and then ‘Lamagoya’ (The balafola have come to make music for peace, not before the war). Orodara Sidiki is a song that is played on the same patterns in which the dance qualities of Sidiki are sung. He was once a resident of Orodara, a village in South-West Burkina Faso. The son of Sidiki, Mamadou, was very popular, he loved the youth. Now it is also played in honor of good dancers. “The way that one makes, the way of life is great ….”
