The Dogon lights is an exciting World Fusion music project featuring Yacouba Diarra of Burkina Faso, Bongo Sidibe from Guinea and members of the award winning band Hamsa Lila (Ian "Inx" Herman, Vir McCoy, Evan Fraser and John Schroeder). The Dogon Lights creates an undeniable, funky and energetic dance atmosphere that takes the listener straight to the stars, using traditional skin and wood instruments played over grooves and inspired traditional vocals .  The Dogon Lights bring together a blend of instruments such as the Sintir and Guimbri from Morocco, the Kamale Ngoni, (similar to the Kora), Calabash and Djembe of West Africa, and Bass, Guitar, Keys, Sax and Flute from the West.  The word, "Dogon" comes from the Dogon people of Mali who believe they are descendants of the Sirians- thus the Dogon Lights.
