FOLI: There is no movement without rhythm

"Dedicated to the people of Baro. Please share.

Life has a rhythm, it's constantly moving.
The word for rhythm ( used by the Malinke tribes ) is FOLI.
It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming, dancing or sound.
It's found in every part of daily life.
In this film you not only hear and feel rhythm but you see it.
It's an extraordinary blend of image and sound that
feeds the senses and reminds us all
how essential it is" 

By the brothers Thomas Roebers and Floris Leeuwenberg

Film crew during one month in Baro, Guinee Afrika.

Many thanks for this powerful film, so full of joy.  And a reminder of how precious are our indigenous cultures.

As every step we take is a rythm. In the rythms of time may you keep dancing and singing,rejoicing in spirit keeping the momentum flowing with all my blessings:)
