The "Korèdugaws" are mythical yet real characters, that is the theme of Famakan Magassa's first series.

These "sacred jesters" form a very closed non-religious secret society in Mali, with both an ethical and cultural vocation.

Their mission: to travel to villages to defuse conflicts and sow peace.
Their values: wisdom, righteousness, good behaviour and humility.
Characteristics: their outfits ... conical hats, feathers, festive and extravagant jewellery.
