Here is another video by the Ensemble Instrumental National du Mali, and again the leading singer is Djelimadi Sissoko II.
But this time the video, probably recorded in the 1990s by Malian television, is in colour.
The song performed is "Soundiata", the Manding epic. The older female singer, by the way, is Nantenedie Kamissoko.
I just love these huge chorusses and the full squadron of instrumentalists, and it's even better live (so if you ever get a chance...).
