Goboi Masquerade - Kenema

Location: Kenema-Eastern Province
Date: c. 1969
Photo: taken during the Kenema Trade Show (aka Cacao Festival) - this Poro masquerade known as Goboiappeared with its attendants during the festival. Its dance was more frenzied than other masquerades that I had seen. It would rile about in a fury, interspersed with periods of inactivity and rest.
