*******SupremeMasterTV**** – The Classical Music of Cameroon’s Bamoun Kingdom (In Bassa). Episode: 1755, Air Date: 5 July 2011. Today’s Enlightening Entertainment will be presented in Bassa and French, with subtitles in Arabic, Aulacese (Vietnamese), Chinese, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mongolian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai. Welcome, open-hearted viewers. Cameroon, admired as “Africa in miniature,” offers not only vibrant natural and cultural diversity but also some of the coolest native styles of African music. Let’s find out more by going to the city of Foumban. This is the historical capital of the Bamoun Kingdom of Cameroon and an important center for indigenous African arts and music. Yes, this is what is called kwekwet. Kwekwet in Bamoun means shoumoungwé. Shoumoungwé is a woman’s mouth because women chatter a lot. It’s Bamoun men who named it so. And this is what we call the sanza. It has the dangié note. Dangie is a song uniquely for princes. It’s played only for the princes and it is danced only for the princes. For example, I will play a bit. And here is the sanza again, but this one has the mbara note. Popular music. The city of Foumban houses the seat of the Royal Palace of the Bamoun people. Here, we meet talented musicians of the Foumban Royal Artistic Ensemble, an internationally known musical band created by His Royal Highness Prince Njasse Njoya Aboubakar in 1982. They shared with us their deep love and dedication in preserving classical Bamoun music. I’m Prince Fouapon Yaya, the keeper of Bamoun traditional music in all its forms. I chose it because this artistic element was on the path of disappearing. It hurt me to see its imminent disappearance. I chose to work on it to mobilize the young people that you see here to learn the traditional music. I am Mr. Njoya Ousmanou. I’m a member of the Foumban Royal Artistic Ensemble. We play Bamoun traditional music. Bamoun people are born with music. And music accompanies Bamoun people during weddings. As soon as a Bamoun person passes away, music accompanies him. Good day. I’m the president of Bamoun Traditional Dance, at the Bamoun Kingdom. My name is Moucharana Zacharie, Zachariaou. We are born and we are introduced into Bamoun cultural dance. There is no country without traditional dances. I like traditional dance. When we dance it, it gives us joy. My name is Onkié Issa. I’m a musician of the Foumban Royal Artistic Ensemble. And I began playing music at a very young age. When our ancestors played, we accompanied them until we knew how to play music. We’re there to preserve traditional music, which is endangered. (Yes). And also, we teach everyone, anyone, strangers. The origin of classical Bamoun music can be traced to seven centuries ago when the royal court of Bamoun Kingdom established a music society of its own. Style-wise, Bamoun music is a combination of indigenous Bamoun songs and elements of Christian and Muslim music. Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Jesus Christ Hallelujah, Hallelujah Our Father Hallelujah Our Lord is good Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah God is good Classical Bamoun music culture features many Amazing instruments. In their earliest origins, some musical instruments were believed to have spiritual connections. Later, these were performed in all occasions of life, ranging from weddings, ceremonies, and parties, to funerals and other gatherings. His Highness Prince Fouapon hand-crafts classical Cameroonian instruments. He introduced some of them to us. There are instruments with which we prayed to God Almighty, like the lounkeu, we prayed to God with it. It is said that when you play that instrument, you are connected with the Supreme Being. It’s a therapeutic musical instrument, the sound of which could heal certain illnesses of the Bamoun people, especially stress. It’s made out of raffia bamboo. And this is the mvet. Mvet is in French, it originates from South Cameroon. Bamouns call this dounyènyè, mosquito guitar. The sound… This is the calabash, a sound box, metallic wire and wood. Double bells, originally from Batié, an ancient Bamoun musical instrument. It is made of metallic wire. This is what we call the rhombe in French, but we Bamouns call it Ngouen. And this is the nchar of Banso. It came from Banso. It’s not Bamoun. It accompanies popular songs. What is this? Bougre is a fruit, a black fruit, here is the pit. That is the souré, a musical instrument used to call the population. It’s metal, wood and cloth. Right, now you have the dougkouokouo. What is this? Toukouo. What is it made of? Bamboo stem. Here, you have the big mvet; it’s the biggest. Besides performing for the public, Prince Fouapon and other musicians also work to preserve the music, and with pride. They do so by writing down the scores of those songs which have only been passed along orally. I don’t compose. I’m a keeper. I don’t complicate anything. I have never added anything in traditional music. That is what preserves Bamoun history in general. Bamoun history has been preserved through music. First, it’s to preserve, as I have just said, and second, it’s also to publish. Bamoun music tells much about the precious Cameroonian and African heritage. People travel from afar to become more familiar with the Bamoun classical music and culture. My name is Eva, I am a German volunteer, and I stay here in Foumban in Cameroon for one year, to do cultural exchange. I decided to come here to bring a part of my culture to Cameroon and to get a lot of culture from the Cameroonians. You see here… for example, Ibrahim and I, we do music together. He teaches me Bamoun music and I teach him German. Is it easy for you to learn? No, it’s not easy because the rhythm, it’s so different to what we know in our music style. So I have to learn the rhythm and that’s hard for me. But at least you are making some progress? Yeah, I do. For example, in Germany, there are so many people who don’t know about Cameroon or other African countries. And when I come back, I can just tell them something so that they know a lot more. As our program concludes, let us enjoy a classical song from the repertoire of Bamoun music titled “Allelujah,” performed by the Foumban Royal Artistic Ensemble. Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Jesus Christ Hallelujah, Hallelujah Our Father Hallelujah Our Lord is good Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah God is good Hallelujah Our Father Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah God is great Hallelujah Almighty, Hallelujah God of the universe Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah Jesus Christ Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah God is great Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah Jesus Christ Hallelujah Our Father Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah God of the universe Hallelujah Our Father Hallelujah We thank Their Highnesses the royal artist members of the Foumban Royal Artistic Ensemble, and the Bamoun Traditional Dance Troupe for your delightful presentations. May the vibrant classical art forms of the Bamoun Kingdom continue to thrive and be appreciated worldwide. Wishing the best to the proud Bamoun people and all the joyful Cameroonians! Beautiful viewers, we have enjoyed your pleasant company today on Enlightening Entertainment. Now, please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Words of Wisdom, after Noteworthy News.

1- Blood Diamond - Solomon Vandy By James Newton Howard 2- "Dreamcatcher-Seventh Heaven 3- "Black & White" by Kwon Wo Chen. Africa is a vast continent and its regions and nations have distinct musical traditions. The music of North Africa for the most part has a different history from Sub-Saharan African music traditions.[1] The music and dance forms of the African diaspora, includesAfrican American music and many Caribbean genres like soca, calypso and Zouk; and Latin American music genres like the samba, rumba, salsa; and other clave (rhythm)-based genres, were founded to varying degrees on the music of African slaves, which has in turn influenced African popular music. Besides using the voice, which has been developed to use various techniques such as complex hard melisma and yodel, a wide array of musical instruments are used. African musical instruments include a wide range of drums, slit gongs, rattles, double bells as well as melodic instruments like string instruments, (musical bows, different types of harps and harp-like instruments such as the Kora as well as fiddles), many kinds of xylophone and lamellophone like the mbira, and different types of wind instrument like flutes and trumpets. Drums used in African traditional music include talking drums, bougarabou and djembe in West Africa, water drums in Central and West Africa, and the different types of ngoma drums (or engoma) in Central and Southern Africa. Other percussion instruments include many rattles and shakers, such as the kosika, rain stick, bells and wood sticks. Also, Africa has lots of other types of drums, and lots of flutes, and lots of stringed and wind instruments. African popular music, like African traditional music, is vast and varied. Most contemporary genres of African popular music build on cross-pollination with western popular music. Many genres of popular music like blues, jazz and rumba derive to varying degrees from musical traditions from Africa, taken to the Americas by African slaves. These rhythms and sounds have subsequently been adapted by newer genres like rock and rhythm and blues. Likewise, African popular music has adopted elements, particularly the musical instruments and recording studio techniques of western music.[10] The appealing Afro-Euro hybrid the Cuban son influenced popular music in Africa. The first African guitar bands played Cuban covers.[11] The early guitar-based bands from the Congo called their music rumba (although it was son rather than rumba-based). The Congolese style eventually evolved into what became known as soukous
