Jammin' in Bamako

On our last evening in Bamako, Fode surprised us by engaging this duo, on Kora and drum, to come play and sing for us at the house. What a great surprise. They were totally laid back, and not the least bit put out when Doria began to play along with them on this tiny one-string banjo uke-sort of thing whose name we've forgotten. Easier to just pick up than the 21-string kora! (notice Doria's henna'd hands!)
