Lena, pres de BOBO-DIOULASSO,
Danse nocturne ou le masque,
dans sa dimension cosmique,
reactive les puissances de vie.
I put this in google translate and this is what it read:
Lena, near BOBO-DIOULASSO,
Night dance or mask,
In its cosmic dimension,
Reactivates the powers of life.
This postcard is postmarked in 1981.

Bobo-Dioulasso is the second largest city in Burkina Faso.
The name means "home of the Bobo-Doula". It was likely coined by French colonists to reflect the languages of the two major groups in the population.
