Zarma dance 3: Traditional Songhay Dance part 1

Although the Songhay are entirely Muslims, some of their customs predate the coming of Islam in the early 10th century. This narrative dance, which has many elements of the Dongo cult, date from this early period. This old clip was taken from Nigerien TV by Ahmed. Instruments are a tsiriki  a traditional flute, a gooje a traditional fiddle (in Songhay njarka), a dondoŋ a talking drum and a kotso (kurukutu) a traditional snare drum. Part 2 is Zarma dance number 4.
