Dogon "Kona" picture 4 

Posted 10/2/2010 8:22:02 PM

This banjo cousin was collected by me among the Dogon people on the Falaise of Bandiagara in Eastern Mali in 1981. At the time, I made the startling discovery that it was played clawhammer style. The Dogon player I met, and I, played a duet on the song Reuben, which is originally a West African melody that is still current in that part of the world. I was playing a small fretless banjo.
