Demosoni Kelen

Demosoni Kelen is a Dununba-rhythm: "Demosoni Kelen is translated by "a young girl". The players apostrophise the girls with allusive mockery of decidedely sexual character. The girls pay them back in their own kind, casting doubt frequently on the quality of the percussionists' "sticks." " (text in booklet with Mamady Keita's Hamana-CD)

Lessons from Martin Bernhard and Haruna Dembele,
Written material: Age Delbanco (from Ibro Konate), Rafael Kronberger (named Conoule, alslo djembe solo 1) and Marjo Veldman (from Hanruna Dembele)
