Senegal – Mystic leader

A member of the Baye Fall Brotherhood displays a banner with the photograph of Sheikh Amadou Bamba, in a crowd of thousands of pilgrims at the Magal, at the beach in Yoff, Dakar.

The legend says that Bamba left the French colonialist ship, which was supposed to bring the saint into exile, to pray on a sheepskin which was floating over water.
