Tiriba (Triba) is from the Landouma-people, from the Boke- and Boffa area in the West of Guinea. Through the years Tiriba has been given different meanings. In the oldest period Tiriba was a great dancer who performed with a group of percussionists. Dancing in a special costume he was called "the Tiriba" . This Tiriba-dance is no longer danced, but the rhythm is played very often. Later the rhythm got popular with initiations, as girls became woman; a dance where mothers and their daughters dance together.

    I looked for the location for about 45 minutes with no success. What are some nearby streets? Navigation said 277 to exit 3A turn on 11th st and I think 10th street was supposed to turn into Central.... never found Central.
