Sabar Academy

As a dancing anthropologist I believe that you should not only dance, drum and talk sabar, but also profoundly study sabar to gain a better understanding on sabar as a cultural complex phenomenon. There are lots of wonderful books, articles and films published on the topic of sabar. Now is a good time to start.

Below are some of the writings I have produced.

In 2006 I graduated from the University of Amsterdam with a master thesis on sabar titled ‘Sabar and Gender in a Globalising World’.
