AL – KÈ – BUU- LAN
ALKEBULAN, is one of the oldest names given by our ancestors for the continent that we now know as Africa. The name Alkebulan symbolizes going back to our roots. Alkebulan stands for a more self-conscious Africa that will not settle for being just a charity case.

ALKEBULAN
We change the image of Africa picture by picture. From Amsterdam to everywhere.
