The northern regions of Benin are home to the Bariba and the Somba peoples. Each has a different approach to the role of music in their culture. Within the highly hierarchical Bariba society, music is usually performed by professional musicians or griots, storytellers in ceremonies; the function of this music is to enhance the prestige and the pomp surrounding a prince or his dignitaries. For the Somba, contrastingly, music is part of everyday life, and both males and females take part in the playing and dancing

The Bariba and the Somba are two tribes that live there. One tries not to apply the word "primitive" to other cultures, because of its condescending connotations, but there simply is no other word to use in the case of the Bariba. What they produce (on this recording at least) is very simple and very repetitious: voice(s), a basic flute, drums. One track contains some interesting and sophisticated polyrhythmic drumwork.
