More musical styles as we travel on to Guinea-Bissau. The Balanta, which means ‘those who resist’, are the main ethnic group found in Guinea-Bissau. They make up more than one-quarter of the population. The Fulani, whom we encountered in the Gambia, are the other prominent ethnic group of Guinea-Bissau. The Balanta play a gourd lute instrument called a kusunde.

The Balanta kusunde is an ancenstor of the modern banjo. In the 1980s, musical genres like kussundé (based on the music & dancing traditionally associated the kusunde) began to become popular across the country, led by Kaba Mané, whose Chefo Mae Mae added an electric guitar & used Balanta lyrics. Kaba Mane began as a kora player. He then applied his musical skills to the guitar. This music features interesting percussion.

The dynamic rhythm & style are Mane's own creation. It starts off as traditional kussundé rhythm then turns into a soukous-styled sound. On Chefo Mae Mae, the band are: Kaba Mane – vocals & rhythm guitar; Joanito – lead guitar; Salvador Emballo – second guitar; Paul Centeio – rhythm guitar; Braima Touré – bass; Charly Bokher & Yerahim Hosso – saxophones; Fredo – trumpet; Jean Marie Bolangassa – percussion; & Boffi Banengola – drums; with Tuti Carvalo, Aguibo Barry, Marie Evelyne Gillet, Tchando, & Ansumane Mane – backing vocals.
