The cultural fiesta Chibuku Neshamwari Dance Festival is making a comeback after it last featured on our calendars in 2019.
Bulawayo-based dance ensemble Ezimnyama was the competition’s last winner at an event held at Rimuka Stadium in Kadoma.
The organisers announced that Chibuku Neshamwari will roar to life on the 28th of May 2022.
The property has over the years afforded dance groups global recognition and performances at various corporate and cultural events.
This festival has become important in promoting and ensuring that traditional dances, which are one of our crucial intangible cultural heritages are celebrated.
Dance and music have played an important part in the way people interact, celebrate, and narrate our past.
To this end, Chibuku Neshamwari Traditional Dance Festival has kept alive the many traditional dances that define the country and its people.
Chibuku Neshamwari Dance Festival will hold dance competitions, where participants from across the 10 provinces of Zimbabwe will come through and compete.
The top three winning groups will receive prize monies. This will then culminate in a National Final where winners from the 10 provinces will battle it out to be crowned overall winners.
