Senegal - Griot playing a Kora Featured The Gambia Print

Senegal - Griot playing a Kora

Senegal - seated Griot playing a Kora, a 21-stringed harp lute that originated in the Gambia River valley with the Mandinko but is one of the most popular instruments in Senegal. Griots from most Mande groups in Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau play the kora, which has featured on a number of western recordings in recent years. A Griot is a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and/or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition, and is also often seen as something of a societal leader due to his traditional position as an adviser to royal personages. Date: circa 1910s

Senegal - The rebellion at Thies - Courtier Coumba Arehn Featured The Gambia Print

Senegal - The rebellion at Thies - Courtier Coumba Arehn

The circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the Thies rebellion remain obscure. An article at the time said that the rebellion began after the sentencing to 15 days in jail of Diery Fall. He did not accept the charge and with associates, attacked and killed a young colonial officer, Monsieur Chautemps. Two days later, Diery Fall was caught and killed by his own brother who cut off his head and forearm to bring the Pouvergue administrator who had them exposed publicly as a warning and intimidation. Another assassin, Sarithia Dieye was caught a few days later at St. Mary of Bathurst in Gambia. All that remains of this dramatic episode are these remarkable postcards. After being caught on camera, Canar Fall (head of Western Baol province), his brother and "courtiers" (one of which, Coumba Arehn, is pictured here) were all deported to Guyana. Date: 1904
