Janjanbureh is located in the Central River Region. It is also where the slave house was located during slavery.
Kankurang is a general term used to name the Mandinka traditional mask. Mandinkas have different types of masks and each of them has its own purpose or duty towards the community. Each tribe has a name for its traditional mask.
The “Jamba Kankurang”, the “Fambondi”, the “Zimba”, the “Hunting” etc can all be seen performing in this festival. These masquerades are from the following tribes Mandinka, Wollof, and Aku, etc.
If you want to experience the unique feel of these traditional displays this is the right event to be at. If you have missed this year’s festival and you will want to be there next year, be sure to be in the Gambia in late January.
