Burkina Faso

This landlocked West African country with a diversity of people groups and cultures. Music is celebrated among many of these ethnic groups, as you can see expressed in the bronze statues you’ll find in our store. Burkina Faso has a tropical climate, reaching into the Sahara desert in the north, while the southern regions are more temperate and fertile. Many Burkinabè are subsistence farmers, which means that they are directly affected by climate change.
