The history of the Sawa has always fascinated and interested more than one.

People of the estuary, always settled at the river mouths, whether in the Littoral, the Southwest, or in the South, the Sawa are present in three regions of Cameroon - This gives a multi-coloration to its diversity and inevitably contributes to its cultural richness. Their anchor point is water and its depths!

.

Its involvement in the economic culture of Cameroon is straightforward, its potential is naturally its openings to other oceans and to the world! All the ports of Cameroon are on Sawa land - Marine migrations and their influences add a rustic scent and a pleasant and attractive flavor.

.

The "Sawatitude" is a movement that embraces a way of life... a savoir-être and a savoir-vivre of the Sawa. Mangando water-troup unveils a part that, until now, remained unexplored and overshadowed by the thundering and highly famous Makossa. Natural lyricism, born from the depths of the water peoples' souls, artistically influenced and cradled by the waves and gentle breeze of the sea's edges, rivers, and the rhythmic rustling of waterfalls here and there - It is a trace of our orality, a fundamental mode of expression (Belimbi) that pleasantly highlights the contours of our bodily expression, that of our seduction.

.

Mangando will transport us with sounds and choirs inspired by our deities, will trigger shivers in us, and will certainly remind us of our intangible heritage.

"Sawatitude" is a way of life... a savoir-être and a savoir-vivre of the Sawa. Mangando water-troup raises a section of the Sawa culture so far unexplored and overshadowed by the very famous Makossa.

Natural lyricism, fruit of the soul of the peoples of the water, artistically influenced and cradled by the waves and the gentle breeze of the edges of the seas, the rivers, and the jerky rustling of the falls here and there.

It is a trace of our orality, a fundamental mode of expression (Belimbi) that pleasantly underlines the outline of our bodily expression, that of our seduction. Mangando will transport us with sounds and choirs inspired by our deities, will trigger shivers in us and will certainly remind us of our intangible heritage.
