2018 Damba Festival in Nalerigu

This year’s Damba Festival was a great one that went off without a hitch. I joined the “young men” to dane the Saturday night before but they organized again around 1pm on Sunday, the day of Damba. I missed the second young men’s dance but was invited into the palace to be with the elders and the king’s entourage as he prepared to come out.

Here is a slideshow of photos from the event but you can head over to my Flickr gallery to browse all my 2018 Damba Festival images.
