Lanciné was steeped in the music of his people from a very early age. Well versed in the traditional drumming of his village, he is proficient in the dunun (bass) drums, but his specialty is playing the tambin, or fulé: a unique 3-holed transverse flute made from a woody vine that grows along the banks of the river.
On this flute—also known as the Fula or Fulani flute—Lanciné brings forth even the most complicated of musical passages with the ease and grace of one who has spent a lifetime mastering its subtleties and nuances.
