In pictures: Nigerian farmers' fair
Harvest dance

At an agricultural fair in northern Nigeria, a band of farmers display the special dances they perform to celebrate the harvest.

They jump up in the air and wheel braided headdresses around in time with taut skin drums. They bring down crooked sticks on the ground, mimicking hoeing and reaping.

The fair in rural Kebbi State is to display the produce grown in the area, and the ingenuity of the farmers trying to eke a living out of the dry Sahel landscape which gets little rain.
