• 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...

    The ADF is comprised of Islamic rebels who were forced out of Uganda but are able to hide within the dense forests of Congo. They have become masters at evading Congo force while attacking locals in the Beni area. The children enter after 90 seconds. The extensive use of children soldiers was a major issue during the peak of the Congo Wars. The ADF appears willing to indoctrinate children at an early age.

    It’s my dream to have a global community of listeners that collaborate with me guide the direction of my art. I’m not signed to a major label. I don’t have an agent that tells me where I’m playing and who I’m playing for. I made my own label, I book my own shows. I do this because I don’t want to work for the music industry. The “Industry” is the business but the music should be led by the people who love it and live it and not by revenue goals, hidden agendas and quick come-ups. I want to work for all of you: my fans, my fellow creatives, all the movers and shakers who want to build legacies and live stable instead of being caught up in major labels traps focused on formulaic, dollar-driven “success”.

“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.

I'll respond to the first 10 commentators only due to lack of time. Thanks! When I do the series, I pick a national dish from that reported country. The highlighted dish below is called Moambe. It is one of Congo's (DRC) popular dishes. The pic is here: http://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4277/35618385571_20c30648b1_b.jpg This video (below) is part of my Bitcoin in Africa Series where I report on the use of Bitcoin and crypto currencies in Africa. There is a complete playlists on YouTube with respect to this topic. Please check it out under my playlist section. This short video focuses on the Democratic Republic of the Congo with respect to Bitcoin. The video is below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1Be8OMZ2R8 If you have any questions or comments please add them below. I typically reply to all the comments (exception is spam). Transcript of this video is below (who reads this stuff?!) Good evening from the US to fellow subscribers and new people to my show. Welcome to the Sobuka channel. This channel was rebranded to focus on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency technology in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. So if you are looking to find a get rich type of coin, then this is not that channel. There are a gazillion of channels already out there regurgitating the same stuff. Today the African country that I will be discussing is the Democratic Republic of the Congo also known as the DRC as shown on the map on the bottom of your screen. But before we move on, since I have started this series on Bitcoin use in the Caribbean and Africa, I thought it could be interesting to also show case a popular dish from that country. The dish you are looking at is called Moambe which consists of the main following ingredients: chicken, quartered (or chicken pieces), red palm oil, onions, and tomatoes to name a few. So when you go to visit the DRC, you now know of 1 popular dish you to try out. At the end of this video, I will have a link on how you can create this dish from a 3 minute video. So looking at the top left of your screen, I will touch on this country's stats, technology, and pioneers leading the way for cryptocurrencies in this region. I first want to provide a short statistical snapshot of the DRC from 2015 census data. The DRC has roughly about 77 million people with a GDP per Capita that is under $500 USD. Only 2% of the population has access to the internet. With that said not much is happening with the majority of the people with respect to crypto currency. Formerly known as Belgian Congo and Zaire, the DRC has been through chaos for decades with war and political shakiness. Currently there are 18 commercial banks that operate in the DRC with the only US bank being Citigroup. So with low internet usage already, Bitcoin is not presently a viable or strong solution for this country. For those people who do have internet which would make sense being the wealthy, the availability can make it possible to interact with other exchanges outside the country. Quite frankly I do not know of Bitcoin or cryptocurrency use case in the DRC. However, on a released CNN article dated on Dec of 2016, there were talks of an exchange opening up for the DRC. The bitcoin exchange is called BitPesa. It currently allows people to buy and sell their currency as well as purchase Bitcoin. Time will tell if this venture will lead to something. But first thing is first, the people of DRC need to invest in some form of internet capability. Though the are talks of BitPesa being supported in the DRC. For now the neighboring countries which are fully supported include Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. The links to my sources are below. The comments section is open to everyone. Especially if you are living overseas outside the US or know of anyone outside on those places like the Caribbean and Africa, comment on what is going on over there with respect to bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. I definitely know that Steemit, the social media platform on its own block chain is growing with subscribers all around the world. You can also find me on Steemit.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is trying to promote its local produce, while hoping to decrease the quantity of imports in the country. The country's hosting its second edition of Congo's Agriculture Fair and many of those show-casing their products say subsistence agriculture has taken a dive in the DRC. Hlonela Lupuwana reports.

It’s my dream to have a global community of listeners that collaborate with me guide the direction of my art. I’m not signed to a major label. I don’t have an agent that tells me where I’m playing and who I’m playing for. I made my own label, I book my own shows. I do this because I don’t want to work for the music industry. The “Industry” is the business but the music should be led by the people who love it and live it and not by revenue goals, hidden agendas and quick come-ups. I want to work for all of you: my fans, my fellow creatives, all the movers and shakers who want to build legacies and live stable instead of being caught up in major labels traps focused on formulaic, dollar-driven “success”. My trip to Africa for the Independence Day Festival Goma Explosion is an example of how staying true to my vision is so important as an independent artist. Its hard to explain the feeling of realizing that after all I sacrifice daily to follow my dream – I was being invited to perform in a place where so many people dream of visiting. 100% independent. All I wished was I could take all the homies and family that believed in me with me. So yea -- I’m still hype I went to AFRICA. CONGO at that… but trust – I’m won’t say I’’m shocked—I work damn hard to remind people everyday that with good energy and shared resources – you can really make the world shake. And if people feel that my energy helps them get theirs – then I’ll be sure to make sure I keep sharing my story through my music, my shows and my everyday chitchats with the supporters. I did college. Graduated. Did the corporate thing. I’m good. Only thing that ever made sense was music and its ability to keep people together during the worst moments imaginable. I want you to come to a show and step in my world and leave with the simple idea that you can do whatever the hell you want at any moment if you do it like you mean it. So yea – I have to keep killing these shows, blessing these beats and snapping these pics with everybody holding me down because as long as I keep getting these good vibes from STRANGERS…then I know that music matters and it’s on us to use it as our language. Please check out my “Bang Bang Experience” project. I’m challenging everyone to fund the campaign goal and connect with each other with booking agents and promoters so I can bring more music to my fans directly. Every pledge and share counts. 7 Days to Go.... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/234830932/the-bang-bang-experience/backers/report/index

Dian Fossey habituated a troop of gorillas to her presence in an unusual way. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe ➡ DIAN FOSSEY: SECRETS IN THE MIST PREMIERES WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 6 at 9/8c. About Dian Fossey: Secrets in the Mist Dian Fossey: Secrets in the Mist is a three hour series for National Geographic Channel. The series tells the story of the life, work, murder and legacy of gorilla researcher Dian Fossey. The series will weave together three story strands. The first is the story of Dian's life and work - her childhood, her early days researching in Congo and her arrival in Rwanda for the 18 years she studied Mountain Gorillas. The second strand covers Dian's murder in Rwanda and the trial of her American co-worker Wayne McGuire, who was found guilty of her murder. Wayne fled Rwanda before the trial began but was convicted in absentia. He has always maintained his innocence. We intend to reopen the case by reviewing the evidence (if it can be located) and speaking with people who knew and worked with Dian and were involved in investigating the murder. Finally, we will tell the story of Dian's legacy by filming the Pablo troop of gorillas, which includes the silverback Cantsbee, the most successful gorilla ever known. The series will use archive footage and still images, interviews with people who knew and worked with Dian, specially shot footage and reconstruction to tell the life story of Dian Fossey and the aftermath of her murder.

Excerpts of elder Ghanaian drum master Yacub Addy and his exceptional ensemble Odadaa!'s performance of "Congo Square", a 2-hour co-composition by Yacub Addy and jazz titan Wynton Marsalis, at the Montreal Jazz Festival 07. "Congo Square" is the ground-breaking 2-hour co-composition by Yacub Addy and Wynton Marsalis that celebrates the historic Congo Square in New Orleans. The only place in America where African slaves were allowed to perform their own music and dance in the 1700s-1800s, it established the roots of American music by providing a means for African music to enter and mingle with American forms. 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. Produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Featuring Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and Yacub Addy and Odadaa!.
