On Wednesday 19th October Blue Ventures staff and volunteers took zebu carts on a 1 to 2 hour journey inland to the Maskoru village of Ankilimelinike where they particitpated in a Bilo ceremony. This was the penultimate day of a 10 day ceremony and there was much dancing and singing to a band of local musicians playing accordians, a type of guitar and drums. It was a fascinating insight into life in a
Masikoro village and a traditional fomba which everyone felt honoured to be invited.
