The movements involved in twerking show similarities to several traditional West African dances, most notably mapouka, hailing from the Cote d’Ivoire. Known colloquially as “la dance du fessier,” or “dance of the behind,” mapouka is said to exist in two forms: A tamer, more traditional dance performed ceremonially, and the newer, more scandalous version popular with young Ivoirians. #mapouka #westafrica #dance

@Regrann from @mandyafrica - When I tell people twerking started in Africa and they try to argue with me 😴😒😒😒 Mapouka is a traditional dance from the Dabou area of southeast Côte d'Ivoire 🇨🇮 that originated with the Aizi, Alladian and Avikam people. It is also known as "la danse du fessier" or "the dance of the behind" #Mapouka #AfricanDance #IvoryCoast

Mapouka - Twerking Originated In The Ivory Coast -West Africa Mapouka (also macouka) is a traditional dance from the Dabou area of southeast Côte d'Ivoire that originated with the Aizi, Alladian and Avikam people It is also known as "la danse du fessier" or "the dance of the behind". The dance is mostly performed by women,  shaking their rear end side to side, facing away from their audience, often while bent over. The worldwide popular Twerking dance has been attributed to the Mapouka dance via popular media, while some argue the historically correct origin remains the bump.

In the 1980s, artists of the Ivory Coast tried without much success to popularize it after noting the popularity of the bump in the United States. One of the most well known groups is Tueuses de Mapouka. In 1998, the government of Côte d'Ivoire prohibited its performance in public. Following the prohibition, the dance enjoyed very fast-growing global following, especially in the sub-Saharancountries and western nations with large Francophone communities.

The dance is similar to what is referred to in belly dance as "shimmies". The fundamental difference is that in belly dance it is performed while upright and facing the audience, whereas Mapouka is performed more often while bent over and facing away from the audience. The hip movements are however the same.

This traditional dance originated south east of the Ivory Coast in Dabou. From its inception, Manpouka was usually carried out when some religious or other grand ceremony was being conducted. It eventually spread to the west and the rest of the African countries. People around the world are often shun for this type of dance but there is no reason to be ashamed💃🏽 Many people don't realize how connected they are to the homeland even if they've never been. Many Africans in America are attracted to certain music (base/loud drums) dances, styles, etc. b/c of our genetics. The same goes for other ethnicities. It's important to know more about the continent your people came from and the cultural significance of things we include in our daily lives. We should know what our culture was before we were brought to a country that was hell bent on controlling or destroying all the others. How many of us are really clued up on African history?🤔 I know I'm not.
Anywho, that lady ain't a traaaaaamp/just cause she bounce it up and down like a trampoline lol It's natural and it's her culture ❤️🖤💚

Must understand, inner stand, over stand and all the manifestation of understanding that our culture as a black nation when it comes to heritage, identity, rituals, spirituality and dancing all points and hails from West and Central Africa. The name that we all know as of what we see on TV and social media; "Twerking" real name is: Mapouka. Mapouka is an West African ritual dancing tradition that teach and focus on social values in our culture, being in tune with the most high (the creator, frequencies, energy), celebrations of ceremonies with festivities as well as focus on the spiritual aspects of finding a mate in ceremonies including weddings. So before you watch your favorite "Twerk Team" or watch "WorldStar Hip hop" or consider this a "Stripper Dance" do your research on where it actually came from and "Know Your History" black people. Eye stay woke.... You're welcome. ✊✊✊👽👾🔮🌈🌀✨🎹🎷 #truth #facts #factsoflife #knowledge #wisdom #understanding #eyestaywoke #knowthyself #knowgod #doyourresearch #westafrica #ourancestors #mapouka #therealtwerking #twerking #twerk #bootydance #yoruba #africanspirituality #tapintothedivine #tapintoyourculture #felakuti #zombie #classicalbum #classicsong
