Tiriba (Triba) is from the Laduma-people, from the Boke- and Boffa area in the West of Guinea. Through the years Tiriba has been given different meanings. In the oldest period the rhythm was a great dancer who performed with a group of percussionists. Dancing in a special costume he was called ‘the Tiriba’ . This dance is no longer danced, but the rhythm is played very often. Later the rhythm got popular with initiations, as girls became woman; a dance where mothers and their daughters dance together. The rhythm is a ternary rhythm, but there is also a ‘modern’ binary version (by Arafan Touré)
