hiker699 (2 years ago) thanks. you are actually the only person that has put a video and named the title from the country the dance came from instead of just calling it african dance.
****
gobl4ck (2 years ago) These might be South African dancers but the dance is originally from Botswana. Please, can anyone tell me where I can buy any such dancing on DVD.
****
TequilaRocks7 (2 years ago) Thank you so much for this. I'm stuck in a frozen wasteland right now (commonly known as New Zealand) and this really reminds me of home.
****
originaldna (2 years ago) that kid is cute, great stuff. mother land is calling
****
bongiwe (2 years ago) Yeah, that first dance is of the Tswana people of Botswana but also in South Africa. The little boy was doing Zulu dance. The attire, rhythm, dance, all vary from group to group. Only the educated eye can recognize and identify the different people represented. to a layman, it's just "african dance", lol
****
gobl4ck (2 years ago) Well said Bongiwe! People are ignorant and don't even bother doing some research.

NativeOfAfrica (2 years ago) This is very nice, it reminds me of 1977 when the Ipitombi came to Nigeria with Miriam Makeba.
In those days in Nigeria, at the back of our class rooms, we had a box called ANC freedom collection box for paying school fees of SouthAfrica refugees.
Im married to a beautiful SA Woman who has the manners of an Angel.
It hurts to see that uptill today, more than 99% of people I met in my visits and extensive travels in SouthAfrica are not even aware of this Nigerian connection with the struggle.

FugginNorb (8 months ago) Sorry to say... modern "culture" is probably only about 10,000 years old at best anywhere... at any rate the human race is only about 100,000 years extant on this planet.
 
But Africa is full of beautiful songs, culture and tradition.

lele700 (2 months ago) HOW DOES ONE GET THE COMPLETE SHOW VIDEO. pLEASE ADVICE.

****

Proton1 (1 month ago) I think some of the people in this video are from the stage production "Umoja." What's in this video isn't Umoja, but you can find that DVD on eBay. It has a lot of this type of dancing in it.

****

lele700 (1 month ago) Thanks Poton1 for your responce. I will check eBay out and will let you know the result. I have the Umoja video and i agree with you.
