Les Funérailles de l’Éléphant [fr]
Colored album, cardboard hard cover + bilingual audio CD
The French tale is read by François Moïse Bamba. It accompanies the original version as it was collected by Drissa Coulibaly..
Once upon a time, all the animals if the bush used to get together for the palaver. Every year to celebrate their dead, they would pick a large space and clear it.
The elephant is worried: how could he be buried with “dignity”? This Senufo tale, under the appearance of a farce, explains why the hare lives hidden. A great metaphor of the human condition and the flaws of mankind.
