If we had to choose a country to set an African fairy tale, we would choose Burkina Faso.
When visiting the royal court of Tiebelé, we would not be surprised to suddenly see a fairy appear in the painted walls of these small houses, shaped as if they were terracotta. Just as we would not be surprised to see a magician emerge, among the fetishes of the most important traditional therapist in all of Burkina Faso, in the land of the Lobi. And perhaps a little magician is, this famous féticheur who cures all sorts of psychic and physical illnesses, with the sole power of plants, tradition and faith in animist spirituality. Burkina is just that, an ancient animist land, where if you steal, the chameleon will capture your image, and if you betray, your head will be stuck between the pillars of the traditional court. But it is also the country of smiles and hospitality, of unspoiled nature, inhabited by elephants, hippos and sacred crocodiles, live music and one of the most interesting crafts in Africa West.
