Wonsono – Live at Cervantino Festival 2016, Mexico (Video)

Wonsono is a song that expresses the sadness we experience when beloved people pass away. Despite the theme of mourning, it is not unusual in Africa that these songs are accompanied by festive melodies and a steady pace.
Recorded live on 16/10/2016 during Festival Cervantino Templo de la Valenciana, Guanajauto, Mexico.
