Mike (steakbone) I ordered a copy of Sundiata and I am eagerly awaiting its arrival. Has anyone here read it? Any impressions worth sharing?

i haven't read this yet...i tried to get it from work awhile ago but it is missing from our collection so i think i'll just have to buy my own copy! i'm definitely interested in it.


Ruthmarie | 92 comments A wonderful film that goes hand in hand with Sundiata is Dany Kouyate's Keita: The Heritage of the Griot. It is the story of a griot telling the tale of Sundiata to his modern-day offspring, Mabo Keita. The film illustrates the early parts of the epic. Excellent.
