In November 2016 BBC radio producer Robin Denselow accompanied Future Pasts ethnomusicologist Angela Impey to the Damara King's Festival in Okombahe, west Namibia. This article for Songlines magazine is based on his journey and observations.


At the beginning of November 2016, Angela Impey travelled to Namibia with BBC journalist, Robin Denselow, to make a radio documentary about the Damara King’s festival, which took place in Okombahe (Erongo Region), the capital of the ǂNūkhoen (Damara) people. The documentary was broadcast as part of BBC Radio 3's World on Three series, on 9th December 2016. For more information, see our blog.
