Seereer "Cosaan" (a generic term for history, culture or tradition).
This demo reel showcases the numerous Seereer villages around the historical and mythical Saafi region of Joobaas. The name of the group singing is Fasse raŋ (pronounced: Fasse rang). The title of the first song is "Jooɓaas", dedicated to this historic region as the song was recorded while performing in Sange. The last song is "Cosaan Seereer" (Seereer history). The video also depicts agriculture in Seereer country, Seereer women making chere (a Seereer traditional dish similar to couscous but more versatile), dances, some circumcised Seereer boys in all white and Seereer traditional clothing styles called mbuɓ or ŋgul ɓak. The hat is called giirii. In Seereer symbolism, the middle part of the hat represents a cobra which is called inaasiɓin in Saafi-Saafi. It represents power, strength and wisdom/foresight.
