BAKA PYGMIES - FUNERAL DANCE (CAMEROON)
African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
Baka dancers performing a night ritual dance (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).
"All night long we dance and it seems as if we are spilling out into the forest, over the waters of the river, into the hollow trunks of the trees. Our shouts fill the paths and the clearings. Our skin releases the smell of our bodies on the wind, the smell of children of the forest. Without meaning to we are flowing out of ourselves, spreading far and wide. Without realizing it we are everywhere..."
