Quote of the Day

سوداني الجنسيه
والزفه مصريه
واللبسه هنديه
ودي الرقصه غربيه
يا حليل الهويه

Awad Dakkam song by Taha Suliman

    Is there one ‘pure’ culture?

    Isn’t the history of humanity a continuous stream of give and take?

    Actually I completely agree with you. When I was listening to the song I just thought it’s interesting he said that, so I thought I’d put it on here–without commenting on it so as to be objective– and see what others will say. But yes, I think its a beautiful thing to not restrict oneself to one culture, but rather adopt other cultural practices if you find them…”charming.”

    but yes, “give and take” is definitely the case.

    In Sudan however there is no consciousness of a Sudanese identity. Sudanese music is being recycled and the Sudanese culture and identity is being watered down, shunned, neglected, and abandoned.
