lyrics

In Mali, they say Griot and the word Griot means multiple things.
If somebody called you Griot, it means that you are somebody who can build different things and resolve ethnic conflicts and family troubles either in small towns or crowded cities.
Malians consider the Griot as the messenger, the teller and the keeper of history.
The Griot is the one who announces the weddings, births and the deaths: the one who brings peace and reconciliation between couples, brothers, friends and neighborhours. Everybody listen to the words he says and respects him because he knows the history of the village and what a misunderstanding
