LÉGENDES URBAINES

The legends recounted in Sub-Saharan Africa, sometimes menacing, sometimes hilarious, inspired in me a new ethnic group that was hitherto unknown. An urban, ethnic group from Ouagadougou, using materials that have never traditionally been seen by other peoples… Ouarara, Kikumba, Jelu, Kolokolo, Erumbu, Kububombobo, Maka and Rotroro are their first representatives.
