"...strangeness seems so beautiful"

If we think of women living in Africa, we often have in mind thought-fragments like "suppression of women", "circumcision of girls", "poverty" and so on. We seldom think of intelligent, modern women that are aware of their history and their personal interests. One woman that stands for the "New Africa" is Sally Nyolo. She has self-confidence, knows what she wants, is full of courage and never looses her own aims out of sight

In her songs we are told about the stories of old and young women in Cameroon. She herself presents a singing-technique and a music, that in its strangeness seems so beautiful and electrifying to us that it is going on and on in our minds.
