This month we will visit Sorsonet. Sorsonet is a mask from the Baga ethnic group on the upper costal region of Guinea.The mask is kept in the forest and only brought to the village occasionally.
It is a venerated mask believed to be protecting villages. Women also consult the mask through its assigned elder woman guard when they have fertility or pregnancy problems, as well as to thank for successful birth.
This rhythm has now become popular, and is danced by everybody.
Come have some fun with us and bring a friend.
Come SING, Come DANCE, Come LEARN, Come SWEAT!
Adults: $7; Children & Watchers Fee $5
