Soli is traditional Malinke rhythm played to accompany initiation ceremonies, marking the transition of children into adulthood. These celebrations last around 3-months, with the children to be initiated being as young as 7 years old. It is a widely played rhythm across Guinea, with each region having it's own variations such as Wassalon Soli and Soli des Manians. We will be learning what is commonly known as "Soli Rapide", or Soli Fast.

This rhythm is in the time signature 6/8. To get used to playing in this feel, try the basic exercise before moving on to learning the other parts.
