Traditions remain strong in africa



Fishing festival


Race to fish


The Argungu Fishing Festival is the culmination of a four-day cultural event in the north-western Nigerian state of Kebbi.

Thousands of fishermen line up like an ancient army, carrying their traditional nets and gourds.


At the sound of a gun, they pound towards the narrow river and leap into the water.


They have just one hour to catch the biggest fish.
