Louis Sarno recalls the masterful geedal playing of his close friend, the late Balonyona. The geedal is a popular stringed instrument, a type of bow harp, played by the Bayaka. In this clip Louis talks about the wonderful playing of the three real masters of the instrument: Balonyona, Zalogwé and Akété. He also recalls the time Balonyona and others came to perform in Paris in 1991 at the invitation of Madame Mitterand.
