Hello and thanks. I am always happy to see African artists here in Copenhagen. But please note that I am only a photographer and webmaster doing what I can to promote African culture. I am not representingan organisation and can't be a help in arranging african music and dance events.

I am very glad to see these pictures. It made me think and reflect to where I come from. These pictures are one of a kind. Thanks for the memories, thanks for all. I felt a very deep connection between the pictures and me. I would have been more happier if you had more pictures from different areas Like Bamenda or the North West of Cameroon as a whole nevertheless THANKS!!!!!!

Thanks. I also regret not visiting Bamenda and more places in Cameroon. But I am sure you can understand my time was limited. I hope to back sometime though - and I can assure you I wil bring my camera ...and try to make even better pictures.

Could it be The Ghost And the darkness you are thinking about?

I should shake your hand for this wonderful job, I am a Kenyan in Austria and i just bumped into the site and was really surprised. I read someones email and he is asking about some movie about lions devouring humans, i guess he is talking about the Ghosts and the Darkness, hope he is reading this. Some part of the movie was done in kenya, and if he needs some info i would be of great help, i as well have a website promoting African tradition and more. Good work Crawfurd!!!

It was such a pleasure seeing pictures of my beloved Cameroon. The webside is amazing and puts a different spin on the African image we usually are confronted with in the media. I just cannot wait to get to Cameroun this December. And thank you for the beautiful website

My daughter and I recently visited Kenya to meet old friends and travel on Safari to the beautiful parks there.

On one evening, I was re-introduced to the song "Malaika" which I remember from the time that I was a kid growing up in India. It was recorded in India at the time by an Indian singer called Usha Uthup.

I have been trying to get hold of the song (soft or hard copy) since then .. but seemingly can't seem to be successful. Perhaps you can email me a copy? I am not a member of P2P file sharing groups and the file will only be used for my personal listening pleasure.

You can listen to the song here. There are plenty of recordings available. The most popular are probably by: Miriam Makeba and Angelique Kidjo.

I am a journalist from the Republic of Uganda. I have read and watched several reports on Africa in written stories, video and pictures.
But Crawfurd, thanks for giving the other side of the often told story on Africa - war, disease and the like.

Wow! This is great! I really do appreciate this exposure that is not that stereotypical in representation. A welcome break from the usual trend. The site is great and I hope people support it not only by visiting but by financially applauding the effort through purchases even if occasional. Keep it up Denmark? Was once in Kobenhavn and lived on Istegade and loved Tivoli- thanks Denmark, African cultures appreciate you.

Just took a look at images of Cameroon, where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer oh-so-long ago. I enjoyed showing my husband the beautiful pictures of Limbe, where I lived for a couple of years. Thank you for posting these wonderful memories.

Hej Jacob.
Jeg ledte efter billeder af mine forfædres hjemegn omkring Douala, Limbe og Kribi, og blev meget overrasket over at et af de mest ressourcefulde steder på nettet om netop dette sted, var lavet af en dansk fyr som bor kun nogle få minuters gang fra hvor jeg sidder lige nu. Flot og meget informativt photoalbum, Tak for det!
Din formidling af Afrika er fed - ikke kun fordi det er en sjældenhed at finde noget om Afrika som ikke ivirkeligheden bare drejer sig om at indsamle af penge til missionærabejde. Fedt at anmelde afrikanske spille film - det har jeg aldrig set nogen gøre før.

Jeg er selv new media designer og historiefortæller og kunne godt forestille mig et fremtidigt samarbejde med dig. Jeg er igang med at bygge et site om bassa folkets tros-system - hold øje med det!

Hi fellow kenyans,
I am currently studying in Germany and was considering coming to Denmark for my masters. The university i was going too told me that tuition is free, but ive gotta provide other expenses by myself. If you are studying or alrady studied in Denmark and know of how students meet their living expenses while there or of any stipend-providing organisations, please holla at me soon. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Caroline Francis, England 02-03-2005 00:00:00

I hope to go to Cameroon in March for the first time and am very apprehensive. Please send me some advise on do's and dont's.
A very impressive and informative site.
Thank you so much for sharing.
