“Foli” is the word used for rhythm by the Malinke tribe in West Africa.
But Foli is not only found in Malinke music, but in all parts of their daily lives. Foli can be described as the natural riddim that we are all born with and tap into daily. In Malinke, West Africa they say “Tous les choses, c’est du rythme.” (“Everything is rhythm.”) This FOLI riddim is a interpretation of this concept in a Caribbean form.
