  • IRON VILLAGE: The Mossi Village of Dablo in Burkina Faso

    The village of Dablo is quite typical of the lively, busy, creative rural farming village of much of West Africa. People spin and weave cotton, brew millet beer, form and fire pottery, smelt and forge iron, dance and sing, and enjoy life. Airfare from Iowa costs about $2500 through Paris, but I am sure you can do better than that, especially if you purchase your ticket to Ouagadougou in Paris instead of in the United States (so many people fly back and forth between Paris and Ouagadougou that the airfare is not very expensive). If you stay in a tiny rural village and ask a family to give you a room to sleep in and to feed you you could get by on $25-$50 a week. If you stay in a hotel in Ouagadougou it will cost you $150 a day just for the hotel. Meals in Ouagadougou can be cheap or e...

  • Life In A Rural Village - Burkina Faso, West Africa

    The Village of Hope in Burkina Faso, West Africa is home for 10 months of the year to nearly 500 children who come from rural villages. While most of the children have some family in their home villages, they are extremely isolated and are not given the opportunity to receive education, health care, and the like. After developing relationships with the village chiefs (often through drilling wells or providing for other needs) the chief allows Pastor Michel Ouedraogo, Director at the Village of Hope, to care for some of the village's children for the bulk of the year. This video was put together by Rasmata, our sponsorship coordinator at the Village.

  • Fighting Climate Change in West Africa - how forestry research in Burkina Faso can help

    The movie "Fighting Climate Change in West Africa - how forestry research in Burkina Faso can help" tries to show an overview of the current situation in West Africa, taking Burkina Faso and the tree species Prosopis africana as an example. It shows how the knowledge of local people can help: The use of the Zai and Half-Moon technique as well as water barriers try to use limited water ressources as best as possible. Choosing the right plant species and the appropriate period in which they need to be sawn is equally important as the use of compost and termites to improve soil and water infiltration. Apart from that, the movie shows the measures taken by BFW within the project FCC-TECKTAFOR: technical support establishing a provenance trial and a drought experiment as well as the training of...

  • Burkina Faso - Ivory Coast

    Originating in Burkina Faso, the Lobis and the Bilfo have settled in the north-east of the country. Until recently, they were hunters, but are now sedentary. They form villages with no definite structure, rather anarchic, scattered around the interior of the wooded savannah. Their houses, called sukalas, are very unusual buildings, totally different from those of the other ethnic groups of the Ivory Coast. They are built with adobe. Thick wooden pillars hold up the upper floor, which is a flat rooftop. They are of different sizes, depending on the number of members in the family. The rooftop is used to dry the millet and maize. The Lobi are one of the least developed ethnic groups in West Africa. Many women still today wear the traditional decoration, two white stones inserted into th...

    What is supposed to be a nice tour through the various museums in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso turns into a bit of a dud. The national museum is closed and the music museum is down for renovations. However, Ouagadougou is a nice place to just wander around even if it means not visiting any museums or doing normal touristy things. One of the things I take in on this day is the beautiful Grande Mosque in Ouagadougou which is absolutely brilliant. Next to the mosque, there are plenty of shops, vendors and heaps of activity. In general, Ouagadougou is about as comfortable as any capital city in west Africa.

If you stay in a hotel in Ouagadougou it will cost you $150 a day just for the hotel. Meals in Ouagadougou can be cheap or expensive depending on whether you eat them in a local restaurant used by Burkinabes, or in a European-style restaurant mostly used by white people. All of this should be pretty obvious. If you live like a Burkinabe life is inexpensive, if you live like a European it is much more expensive. I arrive at the airport in the evening from Paris, check into a hotel (the Splendid Hotel, recently bombed by Al Quaeda) and stay for a day or two until I am ready to go out to one of my villages. While I am in Ouagadougou I spend a lot of money, but as soon as I get to a rural village the cost of living drops dramatically. Some villages have electricity now, so that you can actually use a fan and have electric light. Most of the villages I visit do not have electricity, and so the only way to stay cool at night when you're trying to sleep is to soak your sheets in water and lie in bed until all the water has evaporated and the sheets are dry. I have a lot of friends who drive me around in their own cars, including into rural villages. I pay them quite a lot of money, 10,000 to 20,000 CFA a day. You can do much cheaper if you take local buses and other local transportation. On the other hand if you're going to do that I hope you speak French.

Burkina was home to the ill-fated revolutionary Thomas Sankara, who as president alienated the French by calling them neo-colonialists, told the country’s creditors he wouldn’t pay them, slated African leaders for their corruption, and practiced what he preached. Blaise Compaoré led a coup against Sankara in 1987, and he has been in power ever since. Compaoré was a trusted ally of Sankara’s. Sankara was assassinated during Compaoré’s coup. 2. Capital of Burkina Faso is Ouagadougou. Written as “Wogodogo” in the Mòoré dialect, it literally means “You are welcome here at home with us”. Known in colonial times as Upper Volta, Burkina Faso means ‘Land of the Honourable People.’ 3. The country has arguably the world’s best place names. Its capital is Ouagadougou. Leafy Bobo-Dioulasso is the second city. It also boasts the desert market town of Gorom-Gorom, Bouroum-Bouroum, Fada N’Gourma, Tin-Akof, Niangoloko and, er, Rambo. 4. The ‘W’ park spans across three countries (Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger). Its unusual name stems from the double bend in the Niger river on its northeastern side (like an upturned ‘W’). Now the park’s savannah woodland is home to over 30 species of mammal and 350 species of bird. 5. Burkina Faso is home to 60 different ethnic groups, each with their own variety of folk music. The Bobo, one of the ethnic groups in Burkina Faso make large butterfly masks which are used to invoke the deity Do in fertility ceremonies. The Mossi are known for their antelope masks. The Lobi carve wood. 6. Like all of the west of Africa, Burkina Faso was populated early, notably by hunter-gatherers in the northwestern part of the country, and whose tools were discovered in 1973. Settlements appeared between 3600 and 2600 BC with farmers, the traces of whose structures leave the impression of relatively permanent buildings. 7. Captain Paul Voulet, who led the French expedition, was a real-life Kurtz figure, who stuck victims’ heads on poles, roasted children over fires, and strung up soldiers who displeased him at a height where their feet could be reached by hyenas’ hungry jaws. When his superiors tried to reign him in, he told his troops he was no longer French but a “black chief,” who would found his own empire. After he was killed, the French, embarrassed that their civilising mission in their colonies had gone awry, attributed Voulet’s activities to the maddening heat of Africa.

In the middle of the dusty Burkina Faso is the village Béguédo. This village is also called little Italy. Most residents of this village have lived in Italy or have family living there. In the local restaurants you can order a delicious plate of spaghetti! vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.

RI visited northern Burkina Faso in June 2013 to investigate climate-induced displacement in the country and the Sahel region in West Africa. Climate change in the region, namely erratic rainfall combined with high food prices, continues to leave millions of people without sufficient food, destroys livelihoods, and forces people to flee their homes.

The movie "Fighting Climate Change in West Africa - how forestry research in Burkina Faso can help" tries to show an overview of the current situation in West Africa, taking Burkina Faso and the tree species Prosopis africana as an example. It shows how the knowledge of local people can help: The use of the Zai and Half-Moon technique as well as water barriers try to use limited water ressources as best as possible. Choosing the right plant species and the appropriate period in which they need to be sawn is equally important as the use of compost and termites to improve soil and water infiltration. Apart from that, the movie shows the measures taken by BFW within the project FCC-TECKTAFOR: technical support establishing a provenance trial and a drought experiment as well as the training of young scientists and potential decision makers in Burkina Faso. Yacouba Sawadogo, a local farmer concludes: "For me there is no life without trees and when we say there is no life, it means that there is no animal or human life. So this is the reason why I believe it is necessary to continue with these activities, because today, whether we say it or not, trees is life."

Originating in Burkina Faso, the Lobis and the Bilfo have settled in the north-east of the country. Until recently, they were hunters, but are now sedentary. They form villages with no definite structure, rather anarchic, scattered around the interior of the wooded savannah. Their houses, called sukalas, are very unusual buildings, totally different from those of the other ethnic groups of the Ivory Coast. They are built with adobe. Thick wooden pillars hold up the upper floor, which is a flat rooftop. They are of different sizes, depending on the number of members in the family. The rooftop is used to dry the millet and maize. The Lobi are one of the least developed ethnic groups in West Africa. Many women still today wear the traditional decoration, two white stones inserted into their lips. On the ground floor of the sukalas, they keep their cattle and household utensils. The rooms are large, including the kitchen, which has a small courtyard through which the smoke from the fire escapes. It is normal for three generations to live in each sukala. A narrow opening in one of the walls of the kitchen leads into the family sanctuary. Here, they keep the fetishes of their ancestors. Our film crew was shooting in this Bilfo village when something unexpected and tragic occurred. The people ran to a nearby sukala. The women let out heartrending screams, and within moments weeping could be heard right through the village. We soon found out what was happening; a ten-year-old child had just died from malaria. The pain of these people broke our hearts. The women raised their hands to the sky and, between sobs, muttered prayers. Then, they shouted out the name of god with the same familiarity they would speak to someone close by, someone who was with them in their profound pain. And then, as always in Africa, the music sounded out, the tom-tom could be heard. Everyone got up – undoubtedly, they had been expecting it. We felt moved and tense. These people, so far removed from our world, had just drawn us into their lives, made us one of them, and we shared their suffering. The sound of the drums brought us out of our daze. And we began to see the real Africa, with its greatness and misery, the human Africa that speaks through the sonar of the tom-tom and is capable of dancing even as they cry. For these people, death has a different meaning than for us. The deceased becomes part of a parallel, and intimately close world. But they have to realise that they have died, they have to leave, no longer bother the living. And hence the cries and the music. For many Africans, illness has a religious dimension. When they fall ill, they believe something evil has invaded them and caused their particular ailment. Whatever it may be, the origin must lie in a spell, and so they turn to the healers, the traditional medicine. The Unyi fetish women are the most famous healers in the Ivory Coast. By invoking their spirit friends, they are capable of driving out the illness from those who have been victim of some spell. The truth is they do give spiritual tranquillity to a patient who, for example, has malaria, and believes that the mosquito that brought the disease was sent by someone wanting to harm him. The sad thing is, if the patient is not given quinine, they will die, even if the devil himself has been forced to flee. That is Africa, and that is how it will continue to be, with its wisdom and its foolishness, but also with its mysterious magic which will continue to fascinate us.

Souleimane BARRY, auteur, compositeur et interprète allie le blues et le folk aux sonorités et aux rythmes traditionnels Peuls et Mandingues. Il s’inspire de ses pairs: Salif Keita, Daby Touré, Alif Naba, … Ses chansons en Fulfuldé, Dioula et Français nous font voyager dans certaines villes d’Afrique de l’Ouest, comme les rues de Ouagadougou ou de Bobo Dioulasso, dans une cacophonie urbaine indescriptible. Des odeurs, des mêlés de poussière ressentis dans sa voix chaleureuse parfois nostalgique de cette terre rouge qu’il utilise aussi dans sa peinture. Une enfance bercée par les Djandjobas (orchestres des fêtes de mariage ou de baptêmes), par la musique des après-midi passées autour du thé en famille ou entre amis, et puis les sons hip-hop des années 90 / 2000. Toutes ces influences ont nourris ses envies et ses créations musicales. Toujours en quête d’expérience et de partage, il va à la rencontre d’autres musiciens, d’autres horizons et mêle des rythmiques électro-acoustique au groove mythique du Sahel. Issu d’une culture Peul nomade, celle-ci nous apprend que les rencontres ne sont pas un hasard. Dans ses textes, il aborde les messages de tolérance, les préoccupations actuelles de la jeunesse africaine comme l’immigration, les problèmes de gouvernance dans les pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest… le combat par l’expression artistique et non par la violence, sans jamais oublier ses racines : « là d’où on vient ». http://www.lelectrophone.fr/artistes/souleiman-barry Album: JON WURO

What is supposed to be a nice tour through the various museums in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso turns into a bit of a dud. The national museum is closed and the music museum is down for renovations. However, Ouagadougou is a nice place to just wander around even if it means not visiting any museums or doing normal touristy things. One of the things I take in on this day is the beautiful Grande Mosque in Ouagadougou which is absolutely brilliant. Next to the mosque, there are plenty of shops, vendors and heaps of activity. In general, Ouagadougou is about as comfortable as any capital city in west Africa.
