Festival on the Niger in Segou, sahel, mali

You'll find many different ethnic groups in Mali: Bozo, Fulani, Bambara, Malinke, Tuareg, Dogon. I photographed the culture and ancient traditions of some of these tribes during visit.


Music for the Malians is very important, therefore I participated in the music festival on the Niger river. I saw the life in small villages on the shores of the river, I walked through the alleys of the city Djenne with its majestic mosque in mud. I spent some days with the Pays Dogon, people who come from the stars, with their animist religion and the cult of the masks.​
