Zarma dance 4: Traditional Songhay Dance part 2

Although the Songhay are entirely Muslims, some of their customs predate the coming of Islam in the early 10th century. This is part 2 of a narrative dance, which has many elements of the Dongo cult, date from this early period. Part 1 is Zarma dance number 3. 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.
