I've been wanting to open a thread on Nommo for some time now, but I can't find a very accurate description of it (except in the video).
YouTube - ? Asheru ft J. Rawls - Nommo
Around 2 minutes and 19 seconds into the video Asheru explains the concept.

Does everything start with the word?

@mister kitten,
If you haven't already check out the Film Society Group.

There is a thread called The Power of Myth, and has easy access to the first half of the feature.

You will love it.

@sometime sun,
In the beginning was the Word...

Hardly just an African concept although there may be interesting nuances to the African rendering.

I tend to relate this concept back to the singing wizards of the Kalevala.

I think it was not so much a word as a cry of a Godess giving Birth !
One of Egyptian Godesses was called "womb of the Gods:lol:
