Popular rhythm, traditional of the ethnical group Temine from the border region Guines/ Sierra Leone.
Djole is a very well known rhythm that owes its popularity to some Mandenyis who brought it to Conacry. Nowadays it's played all over West Africa. In the beginning it was a mask dance representing a woman; the mask was worn by a man who dressed as a woman.
Djole always was a great village festivity where several villages got together in order to celebrate the big harvest, the end of Ramadan, or a wedding.
The original instrument for this dance was the siko: 4 square drums of different sizes that were played together. Today the rhythm is also played with djambe and bass drums. There is a song for this rhythm and it goes like this-
#Laila i ko korobé, korobe, korobe, mami watone *aya
#sico la i ko, sico la iko
*wa wango sico la i ko, wa wango sico la i ko
