Where twerking originated

muthafuckas need to learn

I hate when people say it’s not the same thing. Like sure the social context may have changed but the style of dance is the same. A lot of the things we do today got passed down and we don’t even realize… Like sucking our teeth out of frustration is a habit that comes out of west Africa.

Other things include

Rolling in an entourage. In my culture it is taboo to go to events e.g to visit the in-laws without an entourage. You have to take your people. A person without people is unheard of. Just taboo.

Speaking in rhyme and using metarphors. Using metaphors is also  sign of respect ‘hlonipha’. You can’t just blurt out things, you’ve got to couch them well.

Pouring libations. Honour for the ancestors.

Name checking and calling out your bragging right. An age old African tradition, Everytime we went to visit my grandparents they’d welcome us at the gate and they’d invoke the answers by name checking and bragging about their feats.

Twerking has it’s roots in Africa however, because twerking is a very provocative dance, a lot of it was done in private specifically amongst fellow women , for example the coastal women of Kenya only do it on the eve  wedding night when they’ve gone to keep the bride company and to advise on tings and tings..y’know girl talk and how it gets raunchy.

yup! rolling with an entourage:because people can truly tell who you are, by who you chill with. and theirs a Nigerian proverb that says that better XD

This was a picture I started before I got a job and then forgot about it.
I found it on monday and decided to finish it. Three things that I find hard to draw are in it: bicycles, kisses and houses. Okay the house doesn’t count, that was easy as it’s basically just the door.
Btw the city I live in now has beautiful houses with really amazing old doors. The door on the illo is one of the simpler ones, most of them are really detailed with faces, figures and plants.Prints are available here.

I’m in the mood for BEAUTIFUL PICTURES

"Our music was once divided into its proper forms…It was not permitted to exchange the melodic styles of these established forms and others. Knowledge and informed judgement penalized disobedience. There were no whistles, unmusical mob-noises, or clapping for applause. The rule was to listen silently and learn; boys, teachers, and the crowd were kept in order by threat of the stick… . But later, an unmusical anarchy was led by poets who had natural talent, but were ignorant of the laws of music…Through foolishness they deceived themselves into thinking that there was no right or wrong way in music, that it was to be judged good or bad by the pleasure it gave. By their works and their theories they infected the masses with the presumption to think themselves adequate judges. So our theatres, once silent, grew vocal, and aristocracy of music gave way to a pernicious theocracy…the criterion was not music, but a reputation for promiscuous cleverness and a spirit of law-breaking."

Plato

People have been complaining about new music literally forever.

Real women don’t have curves. Real women don’t have a frame at all. Real women are shapeless beings of blinding light with terrible powers that even they cannot truly comprehend, and all we can do is crouch in terror.
