Traditional Guinean song which Kite arranged for marimba ensemble. This song comes from the part of Africa where the djembe and kora are played. Its sound will remind you of these instruments. It does not require F# but does use B in the bass. You'll also learn a short vocal and a dundun (bass drum) part. A short recording of this song is available <a href="http://www.TallKite.com/misc_files/kolongkumasample.mp3">here</a>.
