botswana metalheads

Just came across this article in The Guardian about the metalheads and metal music in Botswana and am especially interested in their style.  Reminds me of Les Sapeurs which I posted about here.  Both are interesting in how much the clothing is an expression of a deeper cultural system.

People think that we are rough, evil creatures, but [metal] teaches us to be free with expression, to do things on our own…
