Salia Koroma: “Two Heads Of Game Wouldn’t Fail To Fill A Pot”
The song I’ve posted is in every way a stand-alone performance, ‘culled’ by the singer himself from the longer composition that we all know. What we have here is the fifth portion of Fishing For Our Father, The Legend Of Fawonde, in other words the conclusion of the song.
We should note that Salia has given to a familiar story a very deft narrative slant, and this is so only because of the chiefly audience.
