Alostmen – Kologo

“The kologo is a 2-stringed predecessor of the banjo played by herdsmen/healers in mid-West Africa.”

The first time I heard a Kologo play, was when I met King Ayisoba @ a music conference (probably Babel Med), where he was showcasing with a young Wanlov The Kubolor who’s a guest in the song above.

Enjoy!
