Mansane Cisse is the story of a fisherman named Bakari. His young wife runs always for money with a rich merchant while her husband is on the river. Bakari decides to contact a marabout and thanks to his powers and witchcrafts, patron Cisse dies the same night in which he consumes the first passion night together with his you lady, who will also die later. The nobles in the village ask Bakari to accompany them on the other bank of the river where the tragedy had just taken place. In the middle of the river Bakari stops his pinasse and asks the griot who was there for the nobles, to sing a song about his story. This song was in fact Mansane Cisse the story of a rich and powerful man who was living in the illusion of being able to obtain whatever he wanted thanks to his richness and about a poor fisherman who is redeemed and enters the collective conscience of the people.
