Une narration à deux voix : Exemple de coénonciation chez les jasare songhay-zarma du Niger

Abstract : This article analyze an "extraordinary" narration by Djado Sekou, a Songhay-Zarma griot genealogist and historian. It is narrated at the "Maison de la Radio" in Niamey on May 27 1987 and thus addresses a virtual audience, the radio audience. This poses an original problem for the griot who usually builds his narrations in direct interaction with his listeners. Djado Sekou must thus redefine his narrative strategy in order to adapt his discourse to his audience and his solution is totally original. Indeed, while numerous griots have narrated over the radio waves, only Djado Sekou narrates by using two voices, with the help of his co-performer, Karimou Saga. This article analyses this co-performence, its function and the representations it generates for Songhay-Zarma auditors.
