Crossroads of art and African culture, Cameroon counts more than two hundred and fifty ethnic groups that enrich its artistic and cultural heritage. Pygmies, Bantu, Sudanese, Arab-Berber, and many others make up this extraordinary population; each bringing its traditions, lifestyle, art and music.
The “Ngondo” is a ritual celebration of the peoples of the coast, the SAWA with a mixture of magic, dance, costume and canoe race. Masks, statues, musical instruments, all combine to perpetuate the sound rites and traditions of the African continent.
Funeral celebrations in the west and northern parts of Cameroon are a pretext for large colorful ceremonies in honor of the deceased.
