Dream Mandé - Djata is a musical monologue written by Rokia Traoré. It is structured around the griot tradition of oral history story telling. At the same time, it is a modern project born out of inevitable changes to the form that can complement the past using contemporary concepts, a vision or contextualized perception that goes against tradition. The narrative of the show adopts part of the story of Soundiata Keïta and the empire of Mandé. The text is told in French or English in the manner of the griots, interwoven with classical sngs of the Mandingo epic history.
