AFUMA | Togo, Africa

In Ifè, the language spoken in the Atakpamé region of Togo, Afuma is the name of an aerial fern that grows on raffia which is used to make stilts. When, in 2012, this Togolese group of waders decided to set up their artistic ensemble they gave it this very name to mark their wish to constantly improve their skills. In their shows they present their ancestral traditions enriched with numerous innovative ideas of their own.
