Of music and native guitars

Zaka is this little oasis in the middle of Ouaga, a place for a cold drink and the possibility to meet some rather interesting people.

Last week I met Akili Gnouma a local musician who plays a mean Goni - a stringed instrument much like a guitar.

I was given an impromptu performance as I sat there drinking a soda, one that resulted in me buying my own Goni that afternoon. Why I did this I don't know, I cant play for toffee nor can I sing.

Oh well...
