Sundiata: An Epic of Old Mali

This is Sundiata, the epic tale of a man ‘great among kings’ who, through his legendary deeds and exploits, came to father an empire. For over 800 years, this story has been passed down to generations of listeners through spoken word.

D.T. Niane’s novelisation captures all the mystery and majesty of medieval African kingship. This ambitious story ranks alongside the Ancient Greek and Roman classics as one of the world’s great adventure stories.
