• The Congo Dandies: living in poverty and spending a fortune to look like a million dollars

    “La Sape” is a unique movement based in Congo that unites fashion-conscious men who are ready to splurge money they don’t really have on designer clothes. Dressing in stark contrast with their surroundings, these elegant ambiance-makers become true local celebrities… but this fame comes at a price. The Republic of the Congo in Central Africa can’t boast of high standards of living. Yet, there are men here who are prepared to spend a fortune on designer suits. They call themselves “sapeurs” – members of the “La Sape” movement. “La Sape” comes from French and stands for “The Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People”. For its adherents, it’s all about style and elegance, the right combination of colours and textures, brand-names and the highest quality materials. They derive true joy fr...

    On-going conflict and a devastating lack of services and infrastructure have created a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since 2009, almost 3 million people have been displaced within the country and half a million refugees remain in neighbouring countries. The European Commission funds aid efforts for people who have been forcibly displaced in the troubled Kivu region. One of the European Commission's partners, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), is helping uprooted families get their lives back on track by providing them with food assistance. When Habyema arrived in Nobili, North Kivu, with his family, they had nothing to help them restart their lives. NRC gave them hoes, seeds, beans and rice that Habyema planted in his field. That...

“La Sape” is a unique movement based in Congo that unites fashion-conscious men who are ready to splurge money they don’t really have on designer clothes. Dressing in stark contrast with their surroundings, these elegant ambiance-makers become true local celebrities… but this fame comes at a price. The Republic of the Congo in Central Africa can’t boast of high standards of living. Yet, there are men here who are prepared to spend a fortune on designer suits. They call themselves “sapeurs” – members of the “La Sape” movement. “La Sape” comes from French and stands for “The Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People”. For its adherents, it’s all about style and elegance, the right combination of colours and textures, brand-names and the highest quality materials. They derive true joy from showing off their attire on the streets of Brazzaville – the country’s capital and the centre of the “La Sape” movement. Walking down dusty streets lined with clay houses, they turn heads and feel like kings. And there’s no price they won’t pay for this. In fact, behind the image of success these dandies project, there are often stories of significant financial troubles caused by their extravagant hobby. To afford the price tag of their designer clothes, “sapeurs” have to save, borrow and even steal money, sometimes bringing ruin to their families. But even the grim consequences of their indulgent dressing habits often don’t stop “sapeurs” from spending money they don’t really have. They are in constant competition with each other and investing in their image is more important to them than improving their living conditions. Dressing smartly becomes a true addiction that is very hard to conquer. However, some “sapeurs” do strive to find a balance between looking chic and being reasonable with their spending. They insist that the “La Sape” movement isn’t about designer suits but rather developing impeccable taste. They make an emphasis on learning to dress well but within one’s means. This way, style and elegance will demand fewer sacrifices from their devotees and will be accessible to more sophisticated men.

An exceptional ensemble of artists from Ghana, Odadaa! includes drummers, instrumentalists, singers and dancers of the Ga ethnic group, and a single American-born singer. Odadaa!'s founder and leader is the irrepressible elder Ga drum master Yacub Addy, a hip and cosmopolitan traditionalist who bucked the status quo to live a life of culture. A drummer, composer and choreographer, Yacub is a master of traditional classics of the Ga people and creator of new works rooted in tradition. Yacub is senior among the renowned Addy family of drummers from Accra, Ghana, the elder brother of Obo Addy and Mustapha Tettey Addy, the uncle of Aja Addy and many others. Yacub was the first to stage genuinely traditional music and dance in Ghana in the 1950s. Determined to present his tradition on the world's stages, his art took him from Ghana to Europe and America, where he created the acclaimed performance ensemble Odadaa!, described by the New York Times as an irresistible, hypnotically charged, earthy and stately treasure." Addy's work preserves and advances the vibrant musical and movement heritage of Ghana-- it is the power of ancient rhythm breathing new life into the 21st century. Also a respected educator, Yacub Addy lectures in the Music Department at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. Credits: "Congo Square" by Yacub Addy & Wynton Marsalis.

http://www.ntvuganda.co.ug/ African leaders from the Great Lakes region have agreed to set up a neutral force in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo to end the security crisis in the area. The heads of state have also established a Trust Fund to support the thousands of victims of the DRC conflict in which the Ugandan government has contributed 1 million US dollars. The agreement signed in Kampala marks the close of the two day summit in which the regional leaders met to discuss ways of ending the escalating violence in eastern DRC.

On-going conflict and a devastating lack of services and infrastructure have created a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since 2009, almost 3 million people have been displaced within the country and half a million refugees remain in neighbouring countries. The European Commission funds aid efforts for people who have been forcibly displaced in the troubled Kivu region. One of the European Commission's partners, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), is helping uprooted families get their lives back on track by providing them with food assistance. When Habyema arrived in Nobili, North Kivu, with his family, they had nothing to help them restart their lives. NRC gave them hoes, seeds, beans and rice that Habyema planted in his field. That way he can now provide food to his family and a better future for his children. Read more about EU humanitarian assistance in the Democratic Republic of Congo: http://bit.ly/1Ndxa4E Video by NRC

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Crickette Sanz and Dave Morgan talk about their work in the Congo with chimpanzees. Crickette Sanz is a biological anthropologist who studies primate behavior to better understand our own evolutionary history. She has spent more than a decade conducting research on wild chimpanzees and gorillas in northern Republic of Congo and is co-director of the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project. The aim of this project is to promote the long-term conservation of great apes through research, enhance the protection of ape habitats, and empower local peoples to implement conservation programs. David Morgan’s lifelong interest in African great apes and wildlife conservation led him to the vast expanses of forest in the Congo Basin. He began his conservation career as a volunteer in the Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park in northern Republic of Congo, and subsequently initiated a long-term study of chimpanzees in the Goualougo Triangle in 1999. His discoveries of chimpanzee tool use and documentation of gorilla ecology have positively impacted conservation efforts throughout the region. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
