Fura

In Mali, Fura is a leaf or herb used in the healing process and refers to a rhythm originating from the Malinke people of Mali played during the initiation ritual. Fura is linked to and can also be referred to as "Suku/Sugu" in Mali and "Soli" in Guinea. There are other rhythms such as Moribyassa that sound very similar to Fura but are played for different occasions.
