kayliz said...

She knows way more about Luo culture than I do - and I was born here. Is that sad?

Sue said...

I agree the mama is really talented.. She knows too much bana.. It narrows down to determination anyway... :)

@egm, aco,mwariwadavid, kayliz, sue:true true!theres loads about african/kenyan culture that is truly amazing, but we're slowly killing our uniqueness.hmmm, you know many of these traditional acts could earn a living teaching people these things abroad instead of having some people teaching fake african dance/music classes..on that note, ebu i go tafuta a orutu i make me some dollaz!you guys remember that primary book that had loads of trad instruments we had to memorize...;)
anyway, hope youre week anzas vizuri!

I'm impressed.

Klara said...

He! I was amazed when I saw that on T.V! She's amazing!!

I stand to be corrected but I think that Japanese, Luo and Swahili are similar as in you pronounce words the way they are written. No silent words like in English and French. I know some Jap. Cigarrete is Sigara and so is the same in Swahili. Lighter is raita!..bla bla bla...

Lakini all in all, she is good. Damn!

Was in awe of her as I watched this...somewhat embarassed that I don't seemingly have a great command of my language and or culture as she seemingly does...

That is truly amazing, thank you for posting it. It is inspirational what human beings can do with a little dedication. I am proud to say that I speak my mother toongue even after leaving Kenya when I was really young; and I was suprised to go to Kenya and find my cousins do not speak the mother tongue at all. It is a shame, but to many that is what they call maendeleo.
