The above photos are the remaining from my last post on Culture Day Celebration by Primary/Secondary students. The photographs explore culture dances, various tribal attires and local delicacies.

The celebration is aim to educate the student on their culture values and activities, i.e. how to greet elders in their local dialect, how to prepare some of their local dishes, how to dress and know their own cultural dressing and costumes, they are been taught their local traditional songs and dance steps. To crown it all, the students are taught how to construct a hut with bamboos and palm fronts.

All these things are met to inculcate our African traditional values on the young ones because development and the western or foreign influence is eating up most of our traditional values and culture. However just enjoy the photos.

Thanks for stopping by

Culture Day Celebration by Secondary and Primary School Students

Photo shoots of my students on their Secondary/Primary culture Day celebration organized by the school management on every first term in each Academic section. The culture day is a celebration of various tribes, tradition and culture of diverse students and staffs in the school (which is my working place- Baptist High School, Benin city, Edo state. Nigeria).

The ceremony is packed with a lot of activities like building palm front tents by staffs and students for each tribe, Preparing Local Traditional Dishes, Cultural Dance and Music and the display of colourful attire, make ups and costumes by various cultures in the school.

On my next post I will share more photos on their various cultural dances.

HAPPY EASTER CELEBRATION! Every one.

The Festival of Dance,Music,Culture and entertainment in an African Funeral.

In Africa specifically Nigeria, Funeral ceremony are like festival especially when the deceased died at his or her old age and is well to do or has wealthy children. The burial ceremony is a show case of Cultural and Tribal Dance Groups, Variety of Cultural Music and Dance, various social group with uniform dressing, a lot of food and drinks, and the use of a particular fabric by the family of the deceased and another specific fabric/cloth for friends and well wishers.

I was opportune to be in such a funeral, above photographs are photos of some of the cultural dance group and masquerade featured in the funeral ceremony. It was entertaining and colourful. It took me back to memory lane during my childhood,when  Christmas and new year celebration was celebrated with various cultural groups and masquerade.

It has now been replaced by father Christmas or Santa Claus and contemporary western music and dance.
