"The Datogas are the enemies of the Masais, they look alike, tall and skinny, raise cattle and walk around rapped in their Scottish blanket, carrying long spears in this rather dry part of northern Tanzania. This cd contains mostly recordings of this musician I call the troubadour, like in medieval Europe where troubadour musicians would go from place to place, playing their instrument and singing for people who would pay them, I could also have used the west african griot. This guy can be met in marketplaces or local rural bars and entertain people with his home made fiddle and songs. The other tracks contain handclapping, singing and harmonica to go along women who are jumping while singing. The last track is a party day musical event." - Laurent Jeanneau.
