God bless the internet. This weekend I discovered Azonto, a style of music and dancing from Ghana.
I love the music. And I’m fascinating by the dancing. There’s very little information online but apparently this is a modern take on an old form of Ghanian dancing, in which the movements are based on household chores like ironing and washing.
Which made me think, there’s an Azonto comic-dance-theatre piece to made!
Check it out in these videos. Not much footwork but big extensions of knees and elbows and a compulsory big smile.
If you like the music, go seek You Kill Me by Sarkodie, You Go dance by Akexi Bees and Yenko Nkoaa by Eduwoji.
