Editorial Reviews

This is the story of one of Africa's oldest traditions- Nyau dancing. This ritual exercise, which originated in central Africa is steeped in myth and mystery.Its practitioners are accused of all sorts of things, ranging from cannibalism to vodooism. These stories are not quite dispelled by the fearsome apparition and energetic dances of these dancers, also known as Zvigure.In this episode of Discover Africa, we got a rare chance to visit the peri-urban settlement of Epworth, where Nyau dancing is a common exercise. We were shown through the drumming, the singing, the dancing routines and the pre-dance rituals, which all added up to a mouth watering must-see video for all that want to discover Africa.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Format: Amazon Video
The dances performed by the Nyau dancers are, without a doubt, exciting and enticing. However, it would have been better with more narration or more of a story line, or more background information about the dances, the deities, and the dancers themselves.

A simple video of the Nyau dancers. Some of the moves are quite provocative, so definitely not for children. But the dancers themselves are amazing. Love the little boy in a blue shirt who mugs for the camera! A short 25 minutes. Would benefit from a better narration, the video itself was fine.
