I spent the last weeks with the Fulani who met for the biggest festival in the Sahel in Niger. „It’s through the strength of the eyes that marriages are made.“ The music and dancing is typical of Fula traditions which have largely disappeared. This is characterized by group singing, accompanied by clapping, stomping and bells.
The Wodaabe Guérewol festival is one of the more famous examples of this style of repeating, hypnotic, and percussive choral traditions, accompanied by a swaying line dancing. The Guérewol competitions involve the ornamented young men dancing the Yaake in a line, facing a young marriageable woman, sometimes repeatedly over a seven-day period, and for hours on end in the desert sun.
Suitors come to the encampment of the woman to prove their interest, stamina, and attractiveness.
