Kurabadon (Korobadon, Kouroubadon): Dunumba-rhythm from the Malinke-people in Guinea. This term means ‘Holy Bush’ (editor: sacred grove). The people come and worship the spirit that lives in the bush. They bring offerings and ask questions, for instance about their family, business, hunting, etc. The procession to the forest is accompanied by this rhythm (from Mamady Keïta: A life for the Djembé). Two songs (no meaning jet).

Ee-ee, ee wararla oo-oo, soridyo
ee- ti ka ta ba la mon ma
(naam) ka ta ba la mon ma
kon mola do kuraboda

e nakura kurabadon a mara ee
