Doofendon (Doofendön) is a ritual mask dance. A young couple walks through the forest and approaches a forbidden, mystic area and meets dark spirits there. They are overwhelmed by a fear that leads to a severe fever. Their parents approach the feticheur (medicine man) for help. Through a mask dance he recognizes the nature of the fever and heals them. The Rhythm Doofendon was composed by Famoudou Konate. On the CD on which it is, no bells are used. Instead a ‘kodo kodo’ (?).
