Amongst the Ibos of southeastern Nigeria, one of the most common expressions of cultural artistry is through performance and celebration of masquerades. Understandably, there are many legendary masquerade's across Iboland. Undoubtedly the Akunesi masquerade belongs in that class.
The AKUNESI masquerade originates from Oru in Imo State, Nigeria. A long way from the USA. The masquerade is performed by performers enlisted after undergoing some lessons in Ibo "Mmanwu" (masquerade) training. The Akunesi masquerade is tall and requires high ceiling venues for comfortable performance.
