Extractions: Dogon sculptors of Mali claim secrets particular to their profession: they have privileged knowledge of fire, metals, plants, woods, and other elements of the natural world, and through ancestral sanction they have society's permission to manipulate this information as others may not. These sculptors are society's blacksmiths. They make talismans and likenesses for religious use, forge hoes for the fields and weapons for warfare, and mix herbal medicines with prayer in times of illness. They are historians and storytellers. They clarify and confound, reveal and conceal. In all of these capacities, the Dogon sculptor has for centuries been both artist and businessman, always exchanging services and products for goods or currency, and sometimes employing others to do his bidding. ( Note 1 ) Inquiries into the secret character of Dogon arts abound-primarily to affirm their sacredness. Other contexts of secrecy, however-less arcane, fully secular, and equally viable-have been little discussed.

Extractions: Jump to: Introduction Facts for the Traveler When to Go Events ... Maps Time and tide have not been kind to Mozambique. A long, horrific civil war has scarred the country, shattered its infrastructure and left a million land mines scattered about the countryside. Much of its wildlife, including big game such as elephants and rhinos, has been decimated by war, and cyclones have ravaged its coastline. Droughts and floods take turns rubbing salt in Mozambique's wounds. Mozambicans are putting the past behind them and are rebuilding their country at a remarkable pace. Discussions between the government and the opposition have resulted in an easing of tension. It's now possible to travel in relative safety, though getting around does require keeping your wits about you. And there's a fair number of things to see, including world-renowned beaches, World Heritage sites, funky colonial architecture and colorful local culture. It has been estimated that more than one million land mines - laid by both sides during the war - remain unexploded in Mozambique. Some minefields have warning signs, but most are unmarked and often only get discovered when someone gets blown to bits. For this reason it is simply not safe to go wandering off into the bush anywhere without first seeking local advice - and even then your safety isn't guaranteed. Stay on roads and well-worn tracks where other people have obviously gone before.
Extractions: about the nigger, but don't So who and what is the so-called "negro"? If present-day Politically Correct head-in-the-sand "knowledge" is anything to go by, the negro is very much the same as a White Man. However, anyone with just half a brain left will tell you that that can't be so. After all, there are just too many obvious differences. "But," says the liberal bleeding-heart useless idiot, "it's quite clear that the African American or any other kind of black whether from Africa or not, and whether really black or just one of the shades of brown, and whether pure-blooded or of mixed-blood is simply a White Man caught in a black skin. And, brother," and here the voice is set to tremble a little, "it is our christianist duty to help him get out of that black skin and take his rightful place among the people of this earth. And, brother, let me tell you more: We have been holding them back and we should give them human rights."

Extractions: CENTRAL AMERICA Panama Costa Rica Nicaragua Honduras El Salvador Guatemala] BRAZIL Brazil is a country with musical variety as vast as its geography. Samba and Bossa Nova are known world-wide but there are many other musical styles that are also worth exploring as well. Samba can mean a lot of things in Brazil. There are the sambas de enredo , the theme songs of Rio's Carnival parades which feature the large percussion sections or batucadas marching with hundreds of singers and dancers in escolas de samba or samba schools. However, most recordings feature the samba-cancão or samba-song, best represented by prominent singers from the samba schools like Martinho Da Vila Beth Carvalho Paulinho da Viola Clara Nunes and others, who record in the studio with the same percussion instruments (but fewer!) and add other instrumentation like a seven-string guitar, a ukelele-like cavaquinho and, in general, employ more sophisticated arrangements. Of course, the samba rhythm permeates many styles of Brazilian music and many popular singers include sambas in their repertoire, but the artists above sing Samba almost exclusively. We also recommend any of the samba collections in our catalog as a way to get familiar with the voices of Brazilian Samba, but Brazil Classics 2: O Samba has excellent liner notes to better acquaint you with the genre.
Extractions: Latin American music is extremely rich and varied, encompassing different traditions from Mexico, Central America, South America (Spanish-speaking countries and Portuguese-speaking Brazil, among others), and the Caribbean (Spanish-speaking Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as French influenced Haiti, and the British Caribbean, most notably Jamaica). Latin American music has benefited from very varied influences: Spanish and Portuguese, Native American (especially in the Amazon region, Mexico, Guatemala and the Andes), and African (primarily in the Caribbean islands and Caribbean coast of South America). Native American Music We know little about Native American music in the Americas before the conquests (pre-Columbian music). Archeological studies at Maya, Aztec and Inca sites have given us some information, as have descriptions made by missionaries. Different types of drums, flutes, and trumpet-like instruments were used. Stringed and other instruments were introduced in the 16th century by the Europeans. Mestizo Music The term mestizo refers to Latin Americans who combine indigenous and European traits. Mestizo music has received both of those influences. European instruments and derivations of them include the harp, the guitar, the violin, and the accordion. The African marimba is also common in popular bands in Mexico and Central America. Trumpets also became common in Mexican bands in this century (mariachi bands). Flutes are the main contribution of native culture, most notably in the Incan region (Peru), and varied percussion instruments the main instrumental African influence, primarily along the Caribbean coasts.

Some minefields have warning signs, but most are unmarked and often only get discovered when someone gets blown to bits. For this reason it is simply not safe to go wandering off into the bush anywhere without first seeking local advice, and even then your safety isn't guaranteed - the number of local people with one or both legs amputated is proof enough of that. Stay on roads and well worn tracks where other people have obviously gone before. Take special care on road verges in rural areas - for example, if you want to head into the bushes for a pee. It's even possible to set off a mine by standing on the road and peeing into the verge.

Extractions: By Eugene Godfried, June, 2000 Cuban social and ethnic composition is the result of colonial and capitalist social economic formation of the plantation economy. As Christopher Columbus arrived in Cuba in 1492, he met the first inhabitants of the island, the Tainos. After creating the first village under Spanish domination on the far eastern point of Baracoa, the Spanish rulers started the process of enslaving the native Tainos which led to the so called "encomienda" system formally regulating the trade and possession of natives working in the mines and plantations appropriated by the Spanish settlers. The Spaniards decided to import African labor as slaves to replace the native Taino labor force whose numbers had dropped significantly in the contest against the Spanish colonizers. The Tainos had paid with their life and blood while resisting Spanish intrusion on their lands. The first group of Subsaharan Africans were brought into Cuba in the 16 th century from Sevilla, Spain. Thereafter a huge slave - trade was set up by the Portuguese, Dutch, British and French, deporting Africans from their homelands in Africa in order to bring them to the Caribbean and the New Continent as an enslaved labor force.
