Griot

This was in a message I received recently. 

The griots' role has traditionally been to preserve the genealogies, historical narratives, and oral traditions of their people; praise songs are also part of the griot's repertoire. In addition to serving as the primary storytellers of their people, griots have also served as advisers and diplomats.

Read more on the griot at Wikipedia.
