Presentation of the work
Skaanza: the night dogorienne
Once a year the nomads dogoriens gathered to be transmitted and sing the songs invented during their travels. These evenings, Skaanza were punctuated by dancing around a festive banquet and started every time with this sweet and nostalgic melody: Djônia.
