Bonjour Madame,
Je suis musicien comedien, travaillant pour une compagnie de théatre de rue sur Marseille (compagnie Rara Woulib)
Spécialisé dans le folklore caribéen et latino américain, la nouvelle création de la compagnie (spectacle Bizangos ) nous a emmené découvrir en partie la culture Igbo du Nigéria. A travers une création artistique onirique, nous jouons les cloches Ogenes et empruntons des chants Igbo. Ayant du mal à rencontrer en france des personnes capables de nous traduire ces chants, je viens vers vous vous demander si vous accepteriez de nous aider.
La compagnie et les percussionnistes spécialistes du folklore qui la compose ont à la fois de la retenu d'utiliser ces chants (car étant "spécialistes" nous ne chantons jamais des chants dont nous ne connaissons pas la signification par principe) et à la fois aucune retenu au regard d'une tradition orale qui en fait dans de nombeux cas, la signification est totalement perdue (ex: un Babalao Yoruba de Cuba est incapable de traduire les paroles de ses propres cérémonies). C'est dans ce contexte que nous avons emprunté phonétiquement des chants Igbo mais l'envie de comprendre leurs significations reste entière.
J'aimerai échanger avec vous et partager également sur les aspects culturel, politique, artistique du Nigéria dans son ensemble. Seriez vous disponible pour en parler?
Bien cordialement
Vincent Salagnac

Chère Madame, je vous écris pour avoir des nouvelles sur la Revue des arts de l'oralité n° 3 (L'arbre dans tous ses états) où vous avez publié un de vos articles. En effet, comme ce numéro contient également ma contribution et que je n'ai reçu ni les coordonnées ni un exemplaire de la revue, je vous saurais gré de me communiquer les pages concernées. Je m'excuse par avance pour le dérangement mais, n'ayant reçu aucune réponse du responsable de la revue, j'ai pensé à une alternative, du moins de manière que je puisse citer mon article "Pour une poétique de l'image: l'arbre dans Citadelle de Saint-Exupéry" parmi mes publications.
Je vous remercie d'avance pour votre disponibilité et votre collaboration.
Bien cordialement,

Dear Françoise,

Hello. Yes I remember we met at Mainz. How do you do? I also remember that you decided to leave Nigeria finaly and you had issues with getting jobs because of the name and your "Nigerianised" English accent! Did you actually leave; are you in Europe somewhere?

Yes you can have access to that article. The title has now changed to "Nigerian Videos and Their Imagined Western Audiences: The Limits of Nollywood's Transnationality". It is in the press, to come out by June 2013. Matthias Krings and Onookome Okome have eddited a book Global Nollywood...(of some papers from the Mainz Conference) being published by Indiana University Press.

I have the copyedited version, which, I think, you can have. But I do not know how this works. Can you send an email to Matthias and/or Onookome (as editors) to ask if you can use the material at this point? Once that is done I shall send you the copy I have from Indiana UP.

The delay i my reply happened because your email went to my Spam box, rather than my in-box, so it took a while to see it.

Do have a wonderful weekend.

Hello ma'am, we first met in Lagos (March 2011) at the Nollywood conference in Unilag. I'm not sure you'll remember me. I'm in the 2nd year of my PhD at Westminster University, working on Nollywood and History. I see that you have a forthcoming publication (i.e. if it's not already out) on the subject and would very much like to meet with you for a chat, if you don't mind. Would you please send me your email so that I can write you soon? I'm presently in the UK. Thanks in advance.

Dear all,
note that I have changed the title of my website to better reflect the breadth of my research.
At the moment, I am preparing a book on Nollywood, while participating on two collaborative projects: one in the Open University on intercultural experiences and the other in the CNRS-LLACAN, Paris, on African languages on the Internet.
Feel free to contac t me and share your interests.
