Soké Wo

by Dogo Du Togo

Soké Wo speaks of forgiveness. Forgiveness is a sign of greatness, it is the most beautiful flower of victory. The rhythm is akpesse-bobobo of the plateau region. This rhythm is generally found among the Ewe people in the West African subregion of Cote d'Ivoire in Nigeria, but is common in Togo and Ghana. The Bobobo was developed in the late 1940s by Francis Kojo Nuatro with his dance group. Nuatro has tapped into other traditional music and modern music of the time especially highlife to create the Bobobo. Thanks to its festive side, the dance spreads very quickly. In the 50s and 60s (the years of independence) the bobobo was used a lot in political rallies. This helped the dance become popular very quickly.

Soké Wo parle du pardon. Le pardon est un signe de grandeur, c'est la plus belle fleur de la victoire.
Le rythme est akpesse-bobobo de la region des plateaux. Un rythme qu'on trouve en general chez le peuple Ewe de la sous region ouest africaine de la Cote d'Ivoire au Nigeria, mais sutout au Togo et au Ghana.
Le Bobobo a été developé à la fin des années 1940 par Francis Kojo Nuatro avec son groupe de dance. Nuatro a puisé dans d'autres musiques traditionelles et les musiques modernes de l'epoque surtout du highlife pour créer le Bobobo. Grace à son côté festif, la dance se propage très rapidement. Dans les années 50 et 60 (les années d'independance) le bobobo a été beaucoup utilisé dans les rassemblements politiques. Ceci a aidé la dance à devenir populaire très vite.
