Ismael Lo – Tajabone

I love “Tajabone” by Ismael Lo. It’s such a beautiful song. The sound of the guitar and the harmonica creates such a beautiful melody. It soothes my soul.

“Tajabone” is a Muslim celebration that happens in Senegal. Men dress in women’s clothing, and women dress in men’s clothing. In the evening, they go to people’s houses, asking for Ndeweneul (money, biscuits and sugar cubes). They must dance, or flaunt their costumes, in order to receive these gifts.
