People watch a man descend into a large former well during a traditional ceremony in the village of Ndande, Senegal. Every year, inhabitants of the village take part in a Sufi Muslim ceremony called Gamou-Ndande. The ceremony combines nights of praying and chanting as well as traditionally animist ceremonies.
