Semba and Corredor do Cuanza classified as national historical and cultural heritage

The Semba and the Corredor do Cuanza were recently classified as national historical and cultural heritage. The announcement was made, this Tuesday, by Filipe Zau, Minister of Culture and Tourism, who also made it known that the musical instrument 'Dikanza' and the typical clothing of Luanda 'Bessangana' were also added to the list of goods classified as national historical and cultural heritage.


In the view of the holder of the Culture and Tourism portfolio, this heritage makes Angola proud to conserve a plurality of cultural goods that symbolize one of the greatest cultural and human riches of any community, writes Angop.

In this sense, the minister gave some examples of the efforts made by the Government. "The more than three hundred properties classified throughout the country, the recent candidacy of the Sona for Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, as well as the various interventions for the recovery of public and private buildings classified as national historical and cultural heritage are good examples of the efforts undertaken by the Angolan government," he said, quoted by Angop.

The minister, quoted by Angop, also considered it necessary to recognize the responsibility of both public and private institutions, which through lectures, thematic exhibitions and periodical publications help in the dissemination and identification of the country's heritage and cultural sites.

It should be noted that the minister was speaking, this Tuesday, at the opening of the round table "The Safeguarding of Cultural, Material and Intangible Heritage, in Angola", alluding to the International Day of Monuments and Sites, which is celebrated this Tuesday, the April 18th.
