Listen again to our live interview with researcher/historian Mamadou Faye, a young Seereer knowledgable and passionate about Seereer history especially the history of Siin. Mamadou Faye is taking social media by storm especially with his consistent video content on YouTube on matters relating to the history of Siin and its royal dynasties. This is the 4th part of a series of interviews with Mamadou Faye relating to the history of Siin.
On today's show, the panel and their guests discusses the Joof Dynasty - one of the oldest noble families from the Senegambia region that had ruled three great kingdoms: Baol, Siin, and Saluum for centuries - taking over from their ancient lamanic ancestors. This family has produced some of Senegambia's greatest kings as well as some of its most colourful ones. Another special guest Sering Diouf (aka. Jaraaf Baol) also joins us to shed some light on the history of this family from a Baol-Baol perspective, whilst Mamadou Faye gave us the Siin-Siin perspective. Tamsier Joof is the one asking the questions with his colleague Diokel Laba Ngom who joined later.
This programme was scheduled for last year but due to the guest's personal committments the programme had to be deferred.
