Burundi Drummers

Burundi Drummers in action at The Spraoi Festival in Waterford city.

  

As one of the Africa's most densely populated nations, Burundi is landlocked, and situated a few miles south of the equator. The capital city is Bujumbura, the currency is the Burundi Franc and the official languages are French and Kirundi. The population approaches 6 million.

 

The climate is moderate and very humid. The terrain is dotted with numerous hills and valleys.

 

Tribal warfare has ravaged the country for decades, leaving the fertile land mostly underdeveloped. Economic strengths include coffee and nickel exports.
