La Griotte

14x17 graphite on bristol.

For centuries, Griots and Griottes have been important members of Mande society due to their role as oral historians and keepers of the traditions. Nowadays in the cities such as Conakry, they are also dynamic and powerful singers and performers, and always orchestrate the Dembadon festivals that take place just before a marriage. This woman had a powerful voice and was an accomplished singer and respected griotte.
