Marriage dance of the Sousou tribe.


The rhythm from Guinea is often played in combination with Makuru. The dance starts with the slower Yankadi. The men and women are in rows and approach eachother slowly. When a young boy likes a specific woman, he puts a colorfull scarf around her neck.
That is the sign for changing the rhythm. The rows dissolve and people start dancing individually (with erotic movements) on the Makuru rhythm. During the party they change many times between the 2 rhythms, and the dancers are loosening up..
