Wodaabe male charm dancers from Niger perform the competitive Yaake dance. The men lighten their skins with yellow powder, lengthen their noses with a long line and brighten their eyes and teeth with an outline of kohl. The men change their facial expressions every few seconds, emphasizing their beautiful teeth and eyes. The winner, in the middle, shows off his charisma by holding one eye still and rolling the other from side to side, making him irresistible to his female judges. 1981
