> Songs of the Worso
Monde de la Musique: SHOCK!
Members of the Gejankoe lineage
The Wodaabe, nomad Fulani from Niger, are famous for their praise to the plastic beauty. Each year, during the rainy season, they organise a great festival, the worso, which gives the youngsters the occasion to dress magnificiently, to make up their faces and to dance, each one hoping to be selected as the "most handsome man of the year". This CD presents the stounding vocal polyphonies which accompany these dances.
