It is a unique turn for ICT and Kulture. In terms of determination and determinism . We affirm our interest in cultural development.We utter our passion for what binds us all together. I am sure you might have been fascinated by the characters you saw in the title above. You are right, It is not common. It is Hebrew. Hebrew is the language spoken in Israel. It was the language spoken by lots of biblical figures, Now you see you know something about Hebrew. In the Bible especially the Old Testament, even in the Talmud, you have detailed accounts of the Jewish culture which can be thought of to be with few exceptions to be the Culture of Israel. About Israel, there is a lot to say, most about its people the Jew. Personally, I have been influenced and still are by many Jews in a variety of fields.

משמעותה של התרבות literally the meaning of culture is a true reflection as I ponder and pondered on my recent experience at Street Corner in Nkoleton, Yaoundé during a Cultural show called “ItinerArt”. I have a fascination for Culture as it always exposes me to something new. You might think of all sorts of things when not connected or to the least bathed by the culture of another. So when I learnt The Israeli Embassy, was organizing a cultural show I said let me see what this will look like.
Culturally speaking Israel and Cameroon might seem a
light year different but I was very surprised to see how an artist during the show sang a song
in Hebrew. OOooohh how did she even learn how to pronounce the words?? From
one Israeli who was sited by me, she was doing it so well for articulation in
Hebrew is really difficult. Ok until then it is not so much a similarity. I realized
the dynamism and blend of artistic performances. The dynamism was really loud, I
experienced most in the strength of the Israeli present and in the presentation
of some Israeli. For about 2hours, I experienced arts in a cool place
and in a very mind blowing way. The décor was quite striking, not just due to
newness but as well by the Dynamism it conveyed. It was vibrant, strong and Colorful.

Them My encounter with Esther‘s performance on slave trade and you know what is happening now in Libya just gave me the Goosebumps. Not only was she powerful but she was brave to say her freedom so loud and clear. She had a way to move and play with her body which is very unique. The way she moved on the performance scene mimicking ancestral body languages. I also meet with visual artist Ngassam Yvon whose photographs at the Bandjoun station plunged me into Cameroon’s multicultural strength.

Culture for ICT and Kulture is not just a matter of identity but a manner of being-to-the-world. A manner of opening to the world. We know the processes of our human cultural evolution and we cannot be insensitive to the impact it has on us. Indeed, during this brief moment at Street corner, I imagined the openings of the cultural wedding between Israel and Cameroon and the myriad of offspring that will come to be soon, very soon. Is it not lovely?
