The Kankurang traditional masquerade, The Gambia, West Africa. It is not uncommon here in The Gambia to see young Kankurangs boldly striding along in the middle of the road, surrounded by a gang of former initiates (almost protectors-like). As you approach, the Kankurang stands stock still so that you have little choice other than to stop your car.
