How to do it.......Ka-Zimba Ngoma

To learn Ka-zimba Ngoma we must first attend to the masters, open our minds in order to master. We must watch the Lions(Zimba) Tigers (Ekun) the Snake(Nyoka), the pounding wave(umbawa),Mother natures diverse wildlife...For the forces of KA-ZIMBA NGOMA comes not from man, but from Nature and each true master contemplates/meditates upon these forces drawing up within themselves the Soul (Roho) the true essence of nature....
We must be still (Abit) and take unto ourselves the rhythms of the Ocean (Nla), the trees(Mti), the wind (Upepo). Then when the time comes, negative forces will be unable to touch us, as they are unable to stop the pounding waves, the whipping branch or catch the swooping bird.......
But it is not enough. We ourselves, out of the deepest rhythms of the cosmos, must find a way between these motions, effortlessly we must turn the pounding wave into the whipping branch, and mix it with a kick of lightening, we must contemplate-meditate until our mind is gone and ride with the current that connects all things without stumbling....
Then when the time comes to act, our earthly-self will perch above us on a branch, singing the ancestral tune to which our body uses to dance through danger..... Mfundishi Hamzah & Equiano
