Part 2: Black Africans doing acrobats!

Africans singing

It’s one thing to do acrobats

but to move in an acrobatic way

without dropping the large bowl

is really saying volumes. THe guy

flips, and spins while holding

the bowl, not missing or skipping

a beat.

He’s kicking and catching

the bowl in air. It’s definitely

a beautiful craft. He’s spinning

the bowl like it’s a rim. The drumming

in the background that goes along with

the acrobat moves reminds me of

that movie Coming To AMerica with

Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall.

The particular scence in that movie is

where the black African women

do their AFrican dance, start

off from one side and end up on

the other side. Then pause. Then

the bride comes.
