          QUIZ QUESTIONS                    
1.   When did Guinea get her independence? Who was the first Leader of the Independent Guinea?

   
   2.    This country was once called French Guinea.  It is located in
West Africa. On the west coast of Africa, there are about 3 countries
that carry the name of Guinea.  There are: Guinea-Bissau,
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea and French Guinea which
some people prefer to call Guinea-Conakry to differentiate it from the
other 2 Guineas.  Its population is over ten million people and 
occupies an area of about 95 thousand square miles. Guinea-
Conakry is not landlacked.  It is open to the Atlantic  Ocean. 
The other countries that share common borders are: Guinea-Bissau, 
Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and the  Ivory Coast. Guinea
is blessed with many sources of water unlike many countries in
Africa that do not have major water links.  In the highlands of
Guinea, there are the Niger River, Gambia River and Senegal River.
These rivers supply very good water supplies and plenty of fish
for the people of Guinea in addition to the supply of fish from the
Atlantic Ocean.

Listen to the   
National Anthems of All 

            African Countries

Every day a different African country's national     Anthem will play the entire day on this page.   This gives us an opportunity to listen to all the
National Anthems of each country in Africa.   There are 53 countries in Africa.  Some have
said that Liberia has one of the best Anthems
in the world.  Now we can listen to all the 
National Anthems of Africa and compare ours
with theirs.

The other reason for this exercise
is to provide our people the opportunity to
listen to, and to learn about other African
countries, see their flags, hear their National
Anthems, and enjoy the very beautiful music
we call, a country's National Anthem. Much
of our information comes from Nationalanthem.info. 

  
Please take note of the dates each

country's Anthem is played.  We begin with
South Africa on the 5th of August and end with
São Tomé and Principe on September 24, 2013.
 
If you want to know more about any of the
African countries, just click on the name of 
the particular country below on the left in blue among the list of 53 countries and you will have the information right there at your finger tip.

__________________________________________


One interesting factor about the listing of the 
African countries in the order in which they are
listed.  They are listed with the country with the
highest per capital income above and the lowest
per capital income at the bottom of the list. Liberia
is 6 up from the bottom.   Total number of countries
is 53.

French lyrics English translation
Peuple d'Afrique,
Le Passé historique !
Que chante l'hymne de la Guinée fière et jeune
Illustre epopée de nos frères
Morts au champ d'honneur en libérant l'Afrique !
Le peuple de Guinée prêchant l'unité
Appelle l'Afrique.
Liberté! C'est la voix d'un peuple
Qui appelle tous ses frères à se retrouver.
Liberté! C'est la voix d'un peuple
Qui appelle tous ses frères de la grande Afrique.
Bâtissons l'unité africaine dans l'indépendance retrouvée.
People of Africa!
The historic past!
Sing the hymn of a Guinea proud and young
Illustrious epic of our brothers
Who died on the field of honour while liberating Africa!
The people of Guinea, preaching Unity,
Call to Africa.
Liberty! The voice of a people
Who call all her brothers to find their way again.
Liberty! The voice of a people
Who call all her brothers of a great Africa.
Let us build African Unity in a newly found independence!
