    Hi my name is Kody and i live in the US..i watched your video of Bajarh,, and i loved it i wanted to know what ethnic group and region it comes from and also if it is used for a celebration or what is it used for
    Thank you

    • Hi Kody! Glad you liked the video, and thanks for your interest in the history of the rhythm. While we are waiting for real answers from the members of the group I can tell you what we were told while learning the rhythm. It is a very old traditional rhythm from the people of the forest. I am guessing we are talking about the Baga people, that originate from the forest regions, though they are now mainly in coastal areas. The rhythm is somewhat close to the family of tiriba.
      This particular dance is taught to Fiston (our teacher) by his family as a mix of traditional and ballet style.
      Will let you know more when i get the answers.
