Burkina Faso - Classic Burkina Faso

Sindou is a lively town, with many roadside kiosks and stalls that serve rice, the locals take to celebrating marriages or funerals with balafon drums.

Traditional dancing begins in the morning and lasts all day for weeks around Ramadan and Eid al-Adha. For ritual dancing, the women and girls dress up wearing colourful Christmas garlands and paint their faces and bodies. The women dance in a large circle, moving around trees from dawn until dusk.
