Festivals and Events in Burkina Faso
The southwest region has a rich tradition of folklore. If you visit Ougadougou, don’t miss the traditional drama "Nabayius Gou" (literally meaning, the empire goes to war) held every Friday at 0600. A tearful wife and his subjects restrain the magnificently attired emperor setting off for war with his brother. Festivals of singing, dancing and traditional music, mark the end of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting.
