Description

Konkoba, from Upper Guinea, is a rhythm used to encourage farm workers as they toil with the daba (hoe) in the fields. It can be used to honour a powerful, rich farmer by the Malinke and Susu people of West Africa. A hard-working and successful person might be called Konkoba. The main language of the region is Malinke spoken by over 3,000,000 people and was the language of court and government of the Mali Empire which, in the C14th-15th, was the largest, wealthiest West African empire. The region has a rich history.
