"“Pincez Tous vos Koras, Frappez les Balafons"” (Pluck Your Koras, Strike the Balafons)

"“Pincez Tous vos Koras, Frappez les Balafons"” was adopted in 1960 as Senegal’'s national anthem, with music by Herbert Pepper and lyrics by Leopold Sedar Senghor, Senegal’'s first president. The anthem is sometimes played incorporating the Koras (harp-like stringed instruments) and Balafons (types of xylophones) mentioned in the title.
