CULTURE TUESDAYS

The African Diaspora is full of so much culture! From dance moves, to weddings, and even types of food! Dance is very much a form of cultural expression and brings people together. The dance featured today is called the “Shoki”. The Shoki dance originated in Nigeria and is a Yoruba slang for getting down on the dance floor with the opposite sex (Yoruba is one of the most popular languages in Nigeria). It is a very fun and popular dance and quite easy to do. Of course, people add their own spin to it to make it more fun! Check out this video to watch the Nigerian Comedy group “Wowo Boys” show us their many versions of “Shoki!” Enjoy!
