Burundi -- Culture Overview The Republic of burundi is one of the smallest and most densely populated countriesin africa. leadership and a rich dynastic culture for several http://expedition.bensenville.lib.il.us/Africa/Burundi/culture.htm
Extractions: The vast majority of the population is Hutu, with only 10% Tutsi (and 1% Twa). Yet these statistics do not reveal the large numbers of people who have intermarried, or the regional loyalties that overshadow ethnic categorization. For example, it is the Tutsi Hima of the south, not the Tutsi Banyaruguru of the north, who have controlled the army and police. The Roman Catholic Church claims the allegiance of most Christian Burundians, and is feared by those Tutsis in the government who believe that the Church's social and educational activities empower Hutus. There are also Protestants, animists, and a small number of Muslims. French and Kirundi, the standard tongue spoken throughout the country, are the official languages. Kiswahili is the language of trade and is widely spoken in the capital. Most of the best-studied Burundian culture was tied to the royal court and centered on music and dance that extolled the virtues of kingship. These dances and the elaborate ceremonies surrounding the royal drums are performed without enthusiasm now. As in much of Africa, cultural heritage is preserved in the artisanal production of goods for daily use. The smelting and working of copper, for example, is an ancient art that continues to be practiced in traditional ways in such regions as Musigati, where special songs accompany different stages of the work. There is a rich oral literature in Kirundi including tales, proverbs, riddles, and poetry, some of which has been recorded and translated into French. The potential for written culture was limited in 1972 by the execution of all Hutus involved in higher education.

Extractions: Country Info Burundi Introduction Burundi General Data Burundi Maps Burundi Culture ... Burundi Time and Date Burundi Culture Back to Top The richness of Burundian culture is apparent in a strong literary and musical tradition and a wide range of fine crafts. Little government funding for cultural activities is available. However, an art school at Gitega and an artisans center at Giheta have done much to encourage artistic expression and preservation. The major libraries are at the University of Burundi, the American Cultural Center, and the French Cultural Center in Bujumbura and the Burundi Literature Center in Gitega. The most important museums are Bujumburas Living Museum (founded in 1977) and the National Museum (founded in 1955) in Gitega. Much of Burundi's rich cultural heritage, most notably folk songs and dances, was intended to extol the virtues of kingship; however, since the fall of the monarchy in 1966 (and particularly after a massacre of Hutu in 1972), such cultural expression has waned. The annual sorghum festival (umuganuro) was once the occasion for a magnificent display of traditional dances by court dancers (intore), with the Karyenda (sacred drum), an emblem of the monarchy, intended to give both musical and symbolic resonance to the ceremony.
