Na Wandaful* Thank you for this nostalgic music that gives us a rich cultural experience of Cameroon and especially the grassfields. I loved it.

ankiasih says:

I am not from Mankon but i love Mbaghalum, its very traditional and there is skill and great dignity in this dance. The beat of that talking drum enchants me always. Peace.

Whaooooo I was so marvelled to find this post. Very proud to be from Mankon as well. Tks for posting.

Emmanuel Mallo says:

Mbaghalum and bottle dance has qualities of being a world art phenomenon, but they need transformation, hard work and promotion.

To meet international standards the dancing has to be intense and more coordinated. What I see from the dancers is too weak and sluggish. The music itself need serious need serious arrangement.

wow! great great to finally find my country music on here!

kedioh says:

Why would you want to transform it?? Transform it and it becomes something else. Why not keep our culture the way it is? It is awesome just the way it is. We should accept and embrace our culture instead of trying to Westernise it. I love it the way it is and I pray that it stays that way!

You are 100% right to say this.
Africa has more culture and history than the whole world put together, and diluting it with western style is a travesty.
I’ve seen enough of Western and American rubbish to last me several lifetimes.
Oh, and I’m not even an African.

Mckol0001 says:

You just correct.I think every western culture is a boring repetition of the previous one.Africa has a great diversity of culture across the gracious continent.

throbule says:

What do you mean by international standards?
There is no such thing in art or culture.
No African artist should compete with any other standard than its own.
This music is amazing exactly as it is and the dancers do a fine job.
Vive Africa!!!

Beautiful music!!! Go Cameroon!!!, Continue the good work. On behalf of one your Garifuna brothers! Wabarougoun iduhenu! (Lets move forward, relatives) In the Garifuna language.

Emmanuel Mallo says:

I used to dance Mbaghalum back in Cameroon. I know real Mbagahalum when I see one. I am not saying that this one is not good. I am not saying that it should be modified with foreign stuff. For the world to really appreciate anything coming from Africa in terms of art and culture it has to be real. When I talk of being real it should primitive as it used to be. Take a westerner 200 or 500 years behind with your art. They are tired of modern things, they want real primitive cultures.

Emmanuel Mallo says:

I am an artist from Cameroon living here promoting and transforming the way foreigners see African art and culture. So international standard is something that is different and will make people thinking and asking serious questions or wanting to discover it.
