Zankolon - a Musical Tale from Africa
Al Griot tells this African tale based on an ancient myth from Burkina Faso like one of the traditional African bards, the griots. It is about the virtues of perseverance and courage: the hunter's luck awaits the one who acquires these virtues. With drums, rattles, the fruits of the flame tree and all kinds of percussion, the story of Zankolon, the good-for-nothing, comes to life as if it had really happened ...
