Kabala Festival, Sierra Leone
For decades, the people of Kabala have celebrated New years in a very unique way. To them, New Year is a way of bringing together the different chiefdoms and tribes in the region to showcase their traditions and culture. This is often accompanied with magical display of the arts, traditional dresses which even though are no longer used but are known to have some significance in the region, other great magical performances and an outing on the top of the tallest mountain in the region.
