According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Zaouli is a popular music and dance practiced by the Guro communities of the Bouafle and Zuenoula departments of Cote d’Ivoire.

“It is a tribute to feminine beauty. Zaouli is inspired by two masks: the Blou and the Djela. Its other name, Djela lou Zaouli, means Zaouli, the daughter of Djela. In a single event, the practice brings together sculpture (the mask), weaving (the costume), music (the band and song), and dance.”

“Zaouli plays an educational, playful and aesthetic role, contributes to environmental preservation, conveys the cultural identity of its bearers; and it promotes integration and social cohesion.”
