Siwé

A welcoming-rhythm and song of the Konyanka-people of Guinea. To the Beyla-and Nzerekore-area, (situated partly in Guinea partly in the Ivory Coast) there was once a Malinke-migration. The Malinke mixed with the local people here and formed the Konianka (Konya, Konyagui or Manian, as the Malinke say) who now speak a Malinke-dialect. Siwe is also used in honour of a personality.
