The Masquerade culture is regarded as one of the strongest bonds of cultural commonality in Africa, binding the continent together. Masquerades or ‘masked plays’ celebrate the practice of ancestral reverence and worship. The masquerades represent the ancestral spirits return to bless the present with the divine presence of the past, in the positive influence of the future. Several communities across the diverse continent commonly exchange masquerade traditions.
