Hyena Men Performance, Harar
As darkness falls over the ancient walled city of Harar, local people and tourists make their way to the outskirts of the city to see a performance. To illuminate the night's events only the headlights of a car are used. Then a small group of curious spectators gathers a few feet from the hyena man of Harar. He then calls out to wild hyenas using his own "hyena dialect" and the wild animals draw closer from the place of their habitation -the forests surrounding the city.
