Bobo Masks in Bare

Today I went with a friend to visit his mother’s village near Bobo Dioulasso. It is a Bobo village on the road to Diebougou, and we visited in the period of the funerals. Much unlike the Sambla, the Bobo have many masks that come out for different rituals. Some of these have the peculiarity of whipping children and people of non-Bobo ethnic groups. The closing picture I took before running away at full speed.
