Friday Find: A Clapping Game from Sierra Leone

The internet is an amazingly wonderful thing – with YouTube and other streaming services we now have access to voices and cultures from around the world. Imagine what folk song collection would have been like in the days of our predecessors if they could have just gone online to find hundreds of primary sources.

That is why we are proud to introduce our “Friday Finds”; these videos may not always be authentic folk songs and folk games, but they are a way for us to share interesting, amusing, or amazing musical videos. So I hope you enjoy this first “Friday Find” a short clapping game from Sierra Leone.
