Babaa Maal

Babaa Maal
Baaba Maal is a uniquely talented singer from Senegal. He's equally at home with an acoustic guitar playing traditional folk music or playing the hottest international dance music. He's finally emerging into the international spotlight as one of the world's hottest performers. While most Senegalese performers belong to the Wolof ethnic group, Baaba Maal is a member of the Pulaar (also known as Fulani) minority from Northern Senegal. Since he wasn't born into a griot (traditional musician) family, he wasn't encouraged to become a performer, but instead studied law. He is a scholar as well as a singer and has spent much of his life studying his heritage.
MAASAAILAND

Maasai
Maasai, Pride of Africa: a Vanishing Culture.

The Maasai, whose history is lost in the heart of the Dark Continent, are, at the same time, a symbol and very real people with an uncertain future. Their ability to cope with a new reality and having the strength, if not to reject it, at least to be able to pick only what they really need, make them a perfect symbol of anti globalism. Of course they don't follow any fashion or intellectual wave around the world......

......The world cannot afford anymore to waste any kind of creature or culture.

In the last years of colonial rule, he worked as a journalist and joined Patrice Lumumba's Congolese National Movement. Mobutu was one of Africa's most tenacious dictators, ruling a vast country with a grip of iron for most of the 32 years that he was in power. Mobutu generally relied on a system of government that some described as "kleptocracy." Reportedly stealing billions of dollars from export earnings and Western aid, he amassed a vast personal fortune. Officials of the International Monetary Fund reportedly estimated that Mobutu's fortune had peaked at $4 billion in the mid-1980s.

KING MUTOTA

The Great Mutato

The year was 1440. The King was Mutota. In any other European country he would have been known as Mutota the Great. He and his council was quick to see that even the most advance states each standing independently and alone, were doomed to European criminal exploits unless unified into a single nation with a strong central government. This also should be achieve through voluntary association if possible. Mutota and the new leaders understood this very well. Therefore, Mutota, in 1440, began the campaign to carry out his grand design. This was a great plan aimed at nothing less than uniting Africans into a vast empire that cut across South Africa below the Limpopo river, and covered Zimbabwe with an indefinite boundary beyond the Zambezi River in Zambia, and on over Mozambique to the Indian Ocean, sweeping southward again to re-posses the entire coastline fronting the New Empire. This area contained the majority of the world precious metals such as gold, copper, tin and iron held in over 4000 mines. After 30 years of struggle, unity was finally achieve in 1480 into the Empire of Monomotapa.
