FOLI: There is no movement without rhythm

Watch more with these video collections:

“’Foli’ is the word used for rhythm by the Malinke tribe in West Africa. But Foli is not only found in Malinke music, but in all parts of their daily lives.”


Directed by Dutch filmmakers Thomas Roebers and Floris Leeuwenberg, FOLI: There Is No Movement Without Rhythm documents how the activities shared by the people of Baro in eastern-central Guinea are connected to rhythm and movement. Via OpenCulture:

“As the Malinke man says, ‘Tous les choses, c’est du rythme.’ (‘Everything is rhythm.’) What makes this film even more beautiful is the fact that it was edited so as to reflect Malinke rhythms.”
