Foro Bingé 1

The first Foro-Bingé presented here was according to Baba Touré used to be played once a year during the annual blacksmith-festival. All the blacksmiths showed their best products of that year. At first there were no bass-drums involved, but instead a lot of iron bell's. And that's something you could expect with all these blacksmiths! (source Baba Touré)

Foro-Bingé 2

The second version of Foro Bingé / Founou Binge presented here is according to Haruna Dembele in his tribe the Bwaba (a sub-tribe to the Bobo) played at the very end of the seven years training to the blacksmith profession. After the last initiation the newly educated blacksmiths emerge from the sacred forest where the initiation took place. It is exiting for sometimes the children are wounded during this ritual. The mothers are waiting to see if their child is coming from the forest. The slow part starts. The douns and the djembé solist play without other djembé accompaniment.
