Identification. Serra Lyoa Location and Geography. Sierra Leone is located on the west coast of Africa, north of the equator. With a land area of 27,699 square miles (71,740 square kilometers), it is slightly smaller than the state of South Carolina. Sierra Leone is bounded by Guinea to the north and northeast, Liberia to the south and southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. There are a wide variety of ecological and agricultural zones to which people have adapted. Starting in the west, Sierra Leone has some 250 miles (400 kilometers) of coastline, giving it both bountiful marine resources and attractive tourist potential. This is followed by low-lying mangrove swamps, rain-forested plains and farmland, and finally a mountainous plateau in the east, where Mount Bintumani rises to 6,390 feet (1,948 meters). The climate is tropical, with two seasons determining the agricultural cycle: the rainy season from May to November, followed by the dry season from December to May, which includes harmattan Demography.

CULTURE The most outstanding feature of the country's cultural life is its dancing. The Sierra Leone Dance Troupe is internationally known. The different communities of the nation have their own styles of costume and dance. In addition, certain closed societies, such as the Wunde, the Sande (Bundu), and the Gola, have characteristic ceremonial dances. A wide range of agility, gracefulness, and rhythm is displayed; in addition, there are elements of symbolism in most of the dances. Drums, wooden xylophones (called balaphones), and various stringed instruments provide the musical background. The carving of various wooden masks in human and animal figures for the dances is especially advanced in the southern region. The Sande mask worn on the head of the chief dancer during the ceremony attending the reappearance of the female initiates from their period of seclusion is perhaps the most well-known carved figure in Sierra Leonean art. It is a symmetrically stylized black head of an African woman with an elaborate plaited pyramidal coiffure adorned with various figures and with a facial expression of grave dignity and beauty. Ivory figures are characteristic of the Sherbro, Bullom, and Temne peoples of the coastal and northern regions. Fine examples of these figures, which were bought or commissioned by Portuguese traders during the 16th century, are still extant. There are also steatite human figures, sometimes distorted, called nomoli, or, in wooden form, pomtan (singular, pombo), which certainly date earlier than the 16th century and were used probably for ancestor worship or fertility rites. At present, they are used for ceremonies to ensure abundance of crops.

Original Bubu Music from Sierra Leone
Bubu boys and devil dancers in Sierra Leone If you've been keeping up with the GO blog, you've probably heard about Janka Nabay ten-year civil war in the 90s. Long-standing war has a strange effect on culture. In Sierra Leone, the war sometimes causes a kind of cultural amnesia people abandon old ways and replace them with new ways. The process is progressive and healthy; but it can cause some people to forget the natural resources in their own history. The natural resource of bubu culture can be seen in the photos above and below. These "bubu boys" blow into carberator pipes and bamboo shoots to create rich tones that give bubu its signature style. The technique of blowing tones comes from ancient Timini Muslim processional music. In my search for Sierra Leonean music, I found a rare recording of Timini processional music. It was recorded on cassette in the 80s by a visiting peace corps worker. Bo Sabi Dance in the stream.

These are some kids that are at school working in a classroom Sierra Leone has a lot of different customs that they share with different countries. In an English law, an ancient rule of law for a particular locality, as opposed to the common law of the country. It has its origin in the Anglo-Saxon period, when local customs formed most laws affecting family rights, ownership and inheritance, contracts, and personal violence. The Norman conquerors granted the validity of customary law, adapting it to their feudal system. Since that time, a local custom outside of common law has been considered valid if it: (1) has been practiced peaceably and continuously from time immemorialin practice, as long as living testimony can recall; (2) is reasonable, certain, and obligatory; and (3) is confined to a specific locality. With the cultural uniformity of the modern age, custom as a force of law retains its validity, but in practice it has lost ground to common law. These are the main languages in Sierra Leone Krio, Mende, Temne, English, and the official language is English. Most of the people speak the English language though. A majority of the people in Sierra Leone also speak Krio. Not very many of the people speak these languages any more. These are the main religions Islam, Christianity. Aced with a collapse in its finances and criticism by donor countries, the government has launched a massive campaign against corruption in public finances. This is the president of Sierra Leone President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah. He has achieved this has launched a war against corruption.
