Traditional Baikoko Dance 2 | Leumbeul/Mapouka

A longer clip of Tanzanian ladies dancing traditional Baikoko.

Baikoko is a coastal dance found within the East African region of Tanga (Tanzania) and Mombasa (Kenya). Baikoko resembles the Swahili Chakacha dance, which features hip roll movements like singer Shakira and slow waist wine like Caribbean singer Rihanna. In swahili you may say "kata kiuno/viuno" which simply means to cut your waist.

Other East African dances such as the Somali niiko and the Malagasy kawitry dance shares its similarities with Baikoko.

The afro-arab Malaya / M'alayah (or معلايه ) dance is also very similar to Baikoko.

In Central Africa, Baikoko is similar to the Mutwashi/Mutuashi dance from Congo.

In West Africa, Baikoko is similar to the Mapouka dance from Cote d'Ivoire , the Sabar-Leumbeul dance from Senegal and the Funana from Cabo Verde.

In North Africa you may see similar dances in Moroccan chaabi chickat (or الشعبي)

In North America Baikoko relates closely to twerking, a dance which was popularized by the twerk team along with pop singer Miley Cyrus and former teacher Jessica Vanessa. Popular music videos such as Nick Minaj's "Anaconda" and Jennifer Lopez "Booty" (feat. Iggy Azelia) also contains a form of Baikoko dance.

"Sugua Gaga" is another popular twerk video from Tanzanian singer Shaa. That video illustrates the common dance moves seen in Baikoko/Chakacha dance."
