Traditional dance and music school starts training dancers from the first quarter of this year

The dance, traditional music and percussion school, in the municipality of Chitato (Lunda Norte), will start training dancers, starting in the first three months of this year, said David Lopez, coordinator of the “Thambue” project.


Registration has already opened and is taking place at the Dundo Regional Museum, revealed the official, who, quoted by Angop, added that in the first stage 50 teenagers between 12 and 17 years old will be trained.

According to Angop, the initiative has 35,000 euros, financed by the European Union, through the World Bank, to digitize Tchokwe folk music, with a view to its appreciation, conservation and dissemination.

Furthermore, according to Angop, the Regional Museum of Dundo also supports this initiative, as it has a collection of music from the east zone (with more than a dozen – a total of 11 – of magnetic tapes designed by Diamang at the time).

With an execution period of two years, the project will cover the copying of songs from magnetic tapes to different devices, research, recording and collection of repertoires as well as a dance, traditional music and percussion school, writes Angop.

Furthermore, among the perspectives of the initiative is also the realization of courses in the production of traditional musical instruments.

The folklore of the area is marked by dances such as txianda, txissela, kalukuta, among others, supported by a multitude of traditional musical instruments, such as the ngoma.
