Liberté II

During the days that Guinea got it's independance from France (1958) one Ballet-performance-group that competed at the National Festival called itself 'Ballet Liberté'. They created two new rhythms on this occasion. These rhythms are now known as Liberté I and Liberté II. Liberté I is a transformed Tiriba, Liberté II is a transformed Djolé.
