Created by a volunteer and used many times in the Gender and Development workshops, “Bananas”, is an energizer or ‘ice breaker’ dance to get people up, moving, and comfortable with the facilitators and each other.
Ni-Vans LOVE to go bananas.
The words go like this:
Bananas, Come together!
And then you GO BANANAS, Go, Go, BANANAS!
GO BANANAS, Go, Go, BANANAS!!
You peel ’em go lo left
You peel ’em go lo right
You peel ’em go lo middle, afta MM, KAE KAE!
MM, KAE KAE!
(Kae kae = “eat” in Bislama)
here is another fabulous video Nik made. he made it in the style of a Vanuatu String Band music video, basically using every filter and effect possible in the basic editing program to make it super “fancy”…. The villagers can’t get enough of it.
