Janjanbureh Gears Up for Kankurang Festival
January 28-30, 2022 should be slated in our calendars for the fifth edition of the Kankurang Festival at Janjanbureh, formerly Georgetown in Central River Region. The festival valorises the great Mande Masking Tradition of Kankurang and other Gambian masks such as Zimba, Kumpo and Fairy.
This year’s edition will bring many Kankurang types from across the country and also other masks which will be in full display. This is a major Gambian cultural festival.
