ivorian225: les gouro ont un pagne qui s'appele le kamandjé ou kamanjé c'est la même technique de tissage que le pagne baoulé, ça se rapproche donc plus du pagne kita, c'est aussi tres beau, je vais essayer de t'en trouver une image et je la poste ici

ok cheesy

Il ya des parents qui ne se fatiguent meme pas a apprendre leur langues et cultures a leur enfants (ca a ete mon cas, et cel8 de bcp) et c'est pas bien
Re: Traditional Attire Of Ivory Coast by Nobody: 2:12pm On Dec 23, 2012
Even though both use the same fabrics/materials and Jewels...

Seems like many of the Akan From The Ivory Coast have better styles of fashion and more lavish displays of their gold,

versus the Akan from Ghana

The Ghanaians often Times look very Bummy...

The Ivorians Are More Lavish Looking....

This Woman...Ahhh Man, My Veins are Pulsing..

...Hmmm..You want to know what i find Extremely Strange About that Video?...


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyxjo7xPqb8

Pause the Video At 1:24^.....You see the woman's face with the pink scarf on?....

Ok. Now do you see the entire video how HUGE her butt is right there in this video?...

Ok...

Now remember that Face.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5h4UXUiH6Q&playnext=1&list=PL7BC1AF3C0D63B96D&feature=results_video

That's her at 2:01....Same Face....

You can see the face clearly at 2:41^...... No Pink Head Scarf..

My question is....

Where the hell did all the thickness in her booty go?

In the second video she looks older....so maybe she lost a lot of weight or something.

The First Video her Butt Was Immortal.

Second Video....not so Much.

...My Taste is Exquisite By The Way.

umh in the 2nd vid, she still have the best body out of all the dancers, her booty is still big i think
maybe it's the effect of the wrapper which makes it look smaller, or she really lost some weight,but i can't tell
Re: Traditional Attire Of Ivory Coast by Nobody: 4:36pm On Dec 23, 2012
More Akan style




Re: Traditional Attire Of Ivory Coast by Nobody: 4:56pm On Dec 23, 2012
Modern styles made with wrapper fabric, this is becoming more and more popular

You should do a comparison of Akan Traditional Attire, Comparing Ghanaian Styles to Ivorian Styles.

Traditional attires from other groups ( Krou and Mande at times) have been influenced by the Akan style (especially for the blings blings).
The pic down is a perfect example of a mixed style (krou&akan)

Akan Kotoko! I am a proud Akan girl cool, I am from the Baoule (Central Akan) and Attie (Southern Akan) ethnic groups
Akan like in Ghana regroup different ethnic groups

http://www.nairaland.com/1010131/outside-nigeria-cultures-west-africa#11697050

In CIV the Akan are: Baoule, Agni, Nzima, Brong, Attie, Adioukrou, Ebrie, Yaoure... there are many, some are central akan(Baoule, Agni..) some are southern akan(Attie, Abbey, Adioukrou, Ebrie...)
Except for the Baoule and Agni who are intelligible, the remaining cannot understand each other languages despite similarities in the culture.
The Baoule, Agni and Adioukrou (I think, not too sure for the later) are matrilinear

The other southern akan are patrilinear,

Royal had a nice idea to create a thread to see similarities and difference between Akan of Ghana and CIV styles, can u help me gathering a few pics from Ghana pls?

@ Ivo,

u see what nicole is wearing at the beginning, (blue/orange wrapper), is that also Kita/Kente? The fabric seems the same, but the patterns are different
Also, some Gouro dancers wear it, I am starting to think it's maybe a type of Kamandje? no?

The Gouro people belong the South Mande group. They are located between the Baoule (Akan) and Bete (Kru) and share a few similarities with these groups. Their culture is very rich and they are among the oldest group in CIV.
Well known Gouro celebrities: Salomon Kalou, Bonaventure Kalou

This is one of their most popular dances: The Zaouli, incredible footwork
