The Mapouka is an african dance that includes shimmy’s and vibration, with very little movement of the feet. The dimbolo is an African “Twerk” that involves rotating the hip and one leg in one direction.
NOBODY can mapouka and dimbolo like Caribbean woman- sorry Africa- you get a close ‘second’.
In this video you will see the ladies doing the mapouka to the Xplosion Band Live on Frontstreet for St Maarten carnival.
There is one lady who actually does an excellent Dimbolo in this video.
Although Africans were brought to the Caribbean centuries ago, much of the culture remains very much African.
Below is a dimbolo video from Africa .. and of course, the kill it!
