"Chacun a son manier a faire ça culture. Quand on et musicien, il faux apprendre chez toi et faire le recherche. Il y a beaucoup de musicien qui joue seulement les rythme de la ou il viennent. Par exemple, quand tu va a Kouroussa tu va jamais entendre Guinea Fare, ou Mane,.. nono, ça c'est la Basse Cotte. A Conakry, on peux jouer tout. Toute les rythme. Les rythme Susu on le joue. Les rythme Peul on le joue, Malenke, on les joue,…parce que on apprend. C'est ça, la force de Conakry. A cette moment, beaucoup de batteur qui ce évolue at Conakry viennent de Bass Cote,.. Il viennent pour ce évolué a Conakry." -- Mouctar Toure.
