 The air is filled  with blue clouds of gunpowder from the hunters’ guns, as they file past wearing their pungent bogolan outfits, bedecked with bones, teeth, animal hornes  and mirror shards while the hunters'  griots play  their gonis in  slow incantantory tones.

I remember these outfits from the Festival sur le Niger. Wonderful. And also some ancient examples in the Textile museum in Bamako.
