Description of the content In Conakry (capital of Guinea), in the entrance hall of the People’s Palace, an imposing fresco at the effigy of Fadouba oularé, is hanged enthroned. He is represented with his Djembe, surrounded by his people, his rifle and the feast raised. He is the incarnation of the slogan sent out by the Sékou Touré government to mobilize the Guinean population: “the right man at the right place”. Fadouba Oularé’s music is imprinted by his environment and by history. Both a vital ritual in all local celebrations and a fundamental element of the Guinean revolution, his music also assumes a mystical dimension. As complex as his music, Fadouba Oularé is first of all an artist, but also the head of clan, a soldier, a thief hunter and a medicine man. Through Fadouba Oularé’s character are conveyed both traditional Mandingue’s music, the history of a nation and the difficulties encountered by its people today.
