The Gris-gris Wrestlers of Senegal
A wrestler warms up before a final fight in the Iba Mar Diop stadium, located in the Medina district in Dakar, March 29 2015. To prepare, he dances alone in a trance-like state to ear-deafening hypnotic drums and repetitive beats. The final fight is endowed with 700000 CFA (approx. 1200 US dollar).
