Pentatonic balafon

Mandou Ba Haminee Pas

Last updated on 12 August 2019


Rhythm from Mali of the Bambara.  Start rhythm for many children who start playing balafon. If they have mastered this rhythm, then apparently they are ready to continue with the balafon.

‘All the children of Mandou are not satisfied with their mother.
What she is sometimes strict!’

Children sing along a song of the literal text in the pattern A.
If you can play pattern A, and you sit on the other side of the balaphone and play the same motor skills (with the cross on the other hand), you also have a matching pattern!
