Lots of fun things happening at Hotel Djenne Djenno which have nothing to do with tourism. Yesterday Madame Saramba Koyaute, one of the fastest rising stars on the already glittering firmament of the Malian music scene descended on the hotel with her entire entourage for a concert in town. They took over the Peulh and Malinke Suites, and as I had been warned that the lady was of ample proportions, I gave her a double bed in the Tamachek to herself. I was somewhat alarmed, however, when she choose to invite her assistant to share the bed with her, a lady of similar amplitude. (Luckily, the bed survived).The concert was scheduled to start at 9 pm. At 10 pm the star had not yet moved, but was still sitting on the floor in the Tamachek, eating deep-fried chicken and listening to a tape of herself singing. Posted by Picasa
