Enjoy a trip to the women and men of Burkina Faso who keep on perpetuating their ancestral traditions everyday: the Gurunsi women who paint beautiful frescoes on the walls; the Lobi who still build fortified houses; the tiny villages where the Bwa people dance covered with spectacular flat masks.
A fantastic cultural journey to meet the populations of Burkina Faso who still live following their ancestral traditions: the Gurunsi women who paint beautiful frescoes on the walls of their houses; the Lobi who still build fortified homes; the Bwa who dance dressed up in spectacular flat masks up to two meters high.
