Burkina Faso West African Fulani Dancing Music Doohaali Doohi_2010_13536_ireneabdouphotography.com-2.jpg
In the town of Djibo in northern Burkina Faso, young "doohoobe" (people who sing "doohaali") dance in traditional fashion. The men and women each form a line facing each other, rhythmically shuffling towards and then away from each other. The women clap their hands and sing as the men "dooho," or sing a distinct, deep rhythmic chant. The men hold "cabbi," sticks which are used when herding cattle. "Doohaali" is a distinct form of music practiced only by the Fulani in Djelgooji, a particular area of Burkina Faso.
