One thing that is a GREAT LOSS in the modern, western dominated world is a civilization that includes dance and physical jubilation. All of us sit on our butts way too much. Not moving disconnects us from our humanity.

MrGreglaw says:

Brilliant footage there.

Man do you guys ever have a point made? I mean you all purposely like the clicking of your keyboards because you type such long messages. I don’t a point made at all in your childish arguments.

soulposishun says:

So let me get this straight. You live in the United States according to your profile. So either you are African American or an African that emigrated. If you love Africa so much, move to Africa.Yes my ancestors helped “colonize” South Africa almost 400 years ago. I could leave Africa, but why would I? I do not know Europe.I am African, no matter if I am white or pink. You cannot say otherwise. I speak Afrikaans and isiZulu. I don’t belong anywhere else.Move to Africa if you care so much.

No matter how much melanin is in our skin.. We all are living human beings.. Our Hearts all pump blood and give off high frequency vibrations of Love.. Our bones and veins have the same function.. Our Soul is eternal..

essentialelement401 says:

Seriously, it’s people like you who are prohibiting forward thinking.

hitomusic says:

This is one the greatest patterns every made. Just one of the very very best ever made. So distinct – this one. It’s “talking” is truly among the best of the best.

jozafreebird says:

Mauichaka says:

Aloha from Hawaii, love drums !

themrduragss says:

Lets get the language correct! White people are decent of African people not directly from Africa! So be proud to be a child of African people!

Fuckin’ A Right!

themrduragss says:

Thats one serious beat

themrduragss says:

There must be earlier African footage unreleased to the public. 

rubexcube00 says:

My ancestors may be from europe, but I am as african as any Zulu, Xhosa, or anyone else, it is in my blood, it is in my soul. To be truly african is not about the colour of our skin, but about how we love the land, the peoples and the cultures of the home we are from.

mtpretty says:

this makes me proud to be black….i love my african ancestry !!!!!!

GLOKD says:

no need to apologise. the entire human species can be traced to the african savanna 😉

ferretyui says:

I apologize sir, but unless you are albino, or mabye moroccan, most whites are of european descent, if you do have afrrican ancestory it make you mulatto not white.

ferretyui says:

GLOKD says:

taekfute says:

You will never be of African decent you deluded thief, and have no right to claim that heritage.

Lee Niu says:

Like how they hyped this Trayvon Martin case?

Stupid nigger, the media is controlled by kikes not honkies…

freyasangria says:

a lot of Afr music has a very heavy emphasis on rhythm and drums. in some songs, there is a huge torrent of drums that sounds exactly like a thunderstorm in the background. awesome! but unfortunately many musicians are poor and do not put out music albums so nobody knows about these sounds.

Wegame Alot says:

Cameras Were Found Where?

GLOKD says:

nah. I meant african decent. they aint ‘arf bad these africans!

sackadoodle says:

You mean deScent lol

Roseblade7 says:

jovonerecords says:

hello is its me u looking for i can its your .. i.one love ,,,skilly bango

Lashonrita says:

if everyone would only think like you and not see a color but see a human and realize that no color is exempt from mistakes, bad decisions, and sins. No skin color is greater than the other. Everything that has breath is equal and no financial position, job, degree, or amount of “success” will ever make one person more significant than another.

paulwall142 says:

altosaxophone1028 says:
