This painting is part of Njogu's kenyeleng series, inspired by the colourful and unusual dress and activities of this women's group in The Gambia.

The kenyeleng women are doing one their performances. They dance and sing and clap to chase away the evil spirits, who they blame for taking away their ability to have children.
