About "Fulani Bounce"

Fulani bounce is a melody that I wrote a few years ago and thought that it sounded very African. I brought it with me to Senegal in 2013 and played it for Massamba Diop and he started smiling and getting all happy and I asked him why. He told me this was a Fulani song. How bizarre - I had unconsciously written it even though I had never heard the original. When he played me the original it was very similar. Ha! Fulani Bounce features Saraba on fula flute which gives it a distinctive flavor and regional style. It also includes the hoddu of Barou Sall and the calabash of Baydi Sall. I am playing the 5 string electric violin and other percussion and bass.
