Most Kora songs are very formal and connected with some piece of history and cultural root of Mende tradition; Jarabi is an exception. However, Jarabi (meaning "Beloved"), is among the most popular of Kora songs. Originally composed shortly after the independence of the Mali Federation -- now divided as Senegal, Gambia and Mali -- Jarabi was meant to capture the new national spirit of renaissance. The government supported a return to traditional arts and cultural expressions of the many people of the region. In this new environment, Jarabi was born, has become and remains the single most popular Kora piece to date
In this version of Djarabi we sing of our sweetheart.
"Have you seen my Djarabi?" No i havent seen your Djarabi.
