Grace grew up under poor conditions in Namibia, Africa. She never thought she had a chance of success. Until she entered the Otjikondo School Project. Today she is top of her class and moving on to college. Her story will make you cry.

Do you want to experience modern Africa? Or rather the "noble savage" in touch with nature? I came to Namibia expecting a version of the latter: Spiritually free humans, ancient rituals, and traditional medicines. Instead I found in Windhoek a city full of shopping malls, cars, and Christian churches. When I arrived at a San village in Grashoek, I thought I'd finally found what I was looking for. But the trip made me reflect deeply upon my own naive image of Africa and question the role we play nowadays in disrupting its people's lives.

Cinnamon skin, petite bodies, and smiling faces: The San people are among the most beautiful tribes in Namibia. Originally, they were nomadic hunters and gatherers, living in quickly fabricated huts of twigs and straw. Today, they are forced to settle but their culture lives on. I have visited the Ju/'Hoansi-San tribe in their village in Grashoek. There, they reenact old traditions for visitors in their Living Museum.

Oshiwambo culture today. In northern-central Namibia, Ovakwanyama people celebrate their traditional ways of life. With the “Epasha”-ceremony the tribe is welcoming twins into the world. I was able to witness the beauty of the ritual and of the people themselves first hand. Get an insight with me into a traditional Oshiwambo village.

Elemotho, Namibia's most famous musician is coming to Europe. Soft, wild, at times bluesy, at times rock 'n' roll and at heart African – his music is hard to define, and yet easy to listen to. And the message is clear.
