This post showcases five videos of Burkinabe women singing. Most of these videos also feature Burkinabe women performing traditional dances. "Burkinabe" is a referent for people of Burkina Faso, West Africa (Burkina Faso was formerly known as Upper Volta).
The content of this post is presented for cultural, entertainment, and aesthetic purposes.
In addition to the music and dance, I am interested in documenting and sharing examples of the traditional clothing and hairstyles, contemporary clothing & jewlery, head wear, and hairstyles that are shown in these videos.

Thanks to all those who are featured in these videos and thanks to all those who are quoted in this post. In addition, thanks to the producers of these videos and thanks to the publishers of these videos on YouTube.
Information about these featured vocalists and information about these songs would be greatly appreciated.

Ethnic groups in Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso's 17.3 million people belong to two major West African ethnic cultural groups—the Voltaic and the Mande (whose common language is Dioula). The Voltaic Mossi make up about one-half of the population. The Mossi claim descent from warriors who migrated to present-day Burkina Faso from the area of Ghana Empire about 1100 AD. They established an empire that lasted more than 800 years. Predominantly farmers, the Mossi kingdom is led by the Mogho Naba, whose court is in Ouagadougou."..
