Chakacha! Strong, powerful word from a phonetic standpoint.  Equally strong by definition. The traditions surrounding it is a web of intricate teachings and lessons that are integrated into the everyday life of the people that practice it; a lifestyle! From a westerner's eyes, Chakacha might resume itself to only a dance involving the waistline and exclusively for women, but it is so much more!

Chakacha is love! It is that feeling that lets you know that you are alive.  It is what you nurture in your heart, and keep close to find refuge when life becomes challenging. It is that rush, that ”butterflies in the belly” type of feeling…  Yes, it makes you blush.  It makes you bold.   

Chakacha is life! That breath that brings the source of energy to go on. That essence that ignites the lust to regenerate. That sparkle in the eye that makes you want more. It is creation at its best, of strong individuals in a lively body, mind & soul!

Chakacha is tradition! From generation to generation, what preserved the way of life, the wellness of a whole community lies in ancestral knowledge that has specific applications.  It is identity. It is DNA. It is the original imprint that drives a nation.  It is that reference point when lost.  It is the line of conduct that guides your steps and those that came before you.  That common thread that persevere throughout the ages, unwavering and bright like a beacon.

Chakacha is empowerment!  When you combine the power to create, to move forward, to elevate others, it brings forth discipline and consistency to execute at any level.  When transcending pain is stronger than the will to give up, strength is built. The power is not in a single person carrying the torch, but in a whole community raising the bar for all! The physical aspect is a reminder of what the mind is capable of. To condition one's body with tools that have been put in place for generations in order to translate a very controlled, challenging movement into play, is nothing less than pure enjoyment! This joy brings forth the essence of power that resides in Chakacha.
