Senegal – Mystic leader

In the village of Keur Ndiaye Lo, disciples of the Baye Fall Dahira of Cheikh Seye Baye perform a religious ceremony that will last till night. Men and women are drumming, dancing and singing prayers. While in other countries fundamentalists may prohibit it, music is a meaningful part of the religious practice in Sufism, which also integrates rituals and social structures of the tribal culture. In Senegal even the Marabouts, as the spiritual leaders are called, often consecrate amulets and practice animistic rituals and shamanism.
