Anigur Game from Mauritania – A Musical Duel with Sticks

Anigur is a traditional musical game in Mauritania that’s been around for a long time.  Two people dance and duel with sticks to a beat.  The spectators play the drums or clap to encourage them on. This game is played more for amusement than anything else.  It’s played at weddings and special events too. You can watch Anigur being played in the video below…

Enjoy! Mama Lisa
