The Gris-gris Wrestlers of Senegal
April 1, 2016. In Djilass, a small village in the district of Thiès, a Marabout performs a Gris-gris ritual by washing a chicken in the water in order to produce a magic potion. All the wrestler use several magic potions which they poor over their bodies before the fights. The ones who win every fight are actually the Marabouts, which are always well paid for the talismans and magic potions by the fighters.
