African Dancing

These are some videos I took of traditional Mossi dancing

This is of a Men's group.

In Koupela every year they do a chiefs processional, the guy under the umbrella is the regional chief, and all the other village chiefs are walking beside him.

After my village Chief died, they held a funeral for him. This is of his daughters doing a dance for him. As they walk in a circle, they throw money and the children scramble to pick it up.

This is of my girls club doing a traditional girls dance in traditional clothing.
