Photo by @gerdludwig | Known for their elaborately painted houses, the Gurunsi — one of Burkina Faso's 60 ethnic groups— live in the southern savanna near the border to Ghana. House decoration is more than ornamental to them. It is a communal pursuit that shapes the Gurunsi’s social and spiritual life, culminating in Tiébéle in an annual art and culture festival. The village-wide activity takes on the form of a mural competition, with mainly female participants. Encouraged by gifts of locally brewed beer, they frequently take breaks to joyously sing, dance, and bump. See more images from my travels and assignments around the globe @gerdludwig.
