“The various tribes living in Burkina Faso (formerly Upper-Volta), Ghana and Togo cultivate millet and cotton, and rear cattle in the northern savannah regions. Their religious activities are dictated by the rhythm of the seasons – during the dry season in particular, when the fields are fallow, large festivals and ceremonies are organized.
The Kurumba people live in the north of Burkina Faso. Their artistic reputation rests on their antelope headdresses which are worn during funeral ceremonies and are believed to represent the soul of the deceased.”
