Mask Mask is a song about discovering the many faces of people. Its a song for the people that deal with being a good person and having to watch the people they are around. The song is also for people who are in a position where they feel like the world has chewed them up and spit them out. I let them know that they have to watch out for the mask and see who's genuine and who's not.
Maraka Djeli Mahamadou has one dream with his group ‘Doucoura’ and that is to totally surpass the world’s musical understanding with the sacred instrument, the tamani, formerly used as a talking instrument that transmitted messages to the royal people. Djeli Mahamadou wants the world to see the usefulness of this instrument with his group. The tamani speaks as in the song ‘Maraka’, one of Doucora’s original tunes, to hear that the tamani comes to intervene between two young men who fight. . His one slogan is, “give me a fulcrum, I will move the world.” “In the end, we are all griots of guidance be it a song, story, sound, rhythm, dance, drum beat, an action, word, movement, thought or prayer.”
