Sunu- A Guinean Dance of Harvest

The dance, Sunu is originally from the area between the borders of Mali and Guinea. Sunu is played on traditional feast days such as Ramadan, baptisims, marriages, and other festivals. The dance is performed to celebrate good harvests. It is a moment for young girls to demonstrate their grace and beauty, sometimes even their sensuality, and for young boys to demonstrate their strength and energy and display their acrobatic ability.
