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.

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.

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.

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. The spiritual cleansing of father, mother, and newborns conducted by a traditional healer, an “onganga", forms the centre-part of the ritual.
