The "dansa" and the "diawoura" are traditional dances of the Khasso country. The Festival Dansa-Diawour ended in the third day of the "Mali Sadio", which commemorates the friendship between the girls of the village and a hippopotamus. In Malinké, "Mali Tchadio" means "hippopotamus which has two colors". Tchadio transformed itself into Sadio. The hippopotamus was struck down by a French colonel during the French colonial reign.
