Kaya is a town in North Burkina Faso


100km northeast of Ouaga. The population is mostly Mossi, so Moore is the primary language.

Kaya is the leather capital of Burkina, though San Francisco is a better bet if you're looking for whips, chaps and slings: check out the artisans market right at the front of the grand marché (near the round point).
