FARO

Bambara Creator God

A Creator God who rocks!

Okay, sorry. In fact he rocked the entire Universe, and succeeded in getting himself pregnant. (Don’t try this at home chaps).

The resultant twins boosted the popular process of populating to explosive proportions. Meanwhile his useless brother Pemba looked on in hopeless wonder.

Faro is now in semi-retirement and only pays a visit every for hundred years to check that nobody else has rocked the universe. So far, nobody has.
