Devil dancing originated in Freetown, spread in all directions, here northward to Makeni in Temne country and then to Bafodea, possibly by way of Kalaba, the nearest town to Bafodea, thirty miles to the east. See John Nunley's book on Freetown carnival/masquerades, articles on these masquerades by Jeanne Cannizzo, one in African Arts."
