AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange

The Sound of Masks

Season 15  Episode 1504

Mapiko is a traditional masked dance performed by the Makonde men of Northern Mozambique. Filmmaker Sara CF de Gouveia’s film follows Atanásio Nyusi, a compelling storyteller and legendary Mapiko dancer, taking us on a visually dramatic journey through Mozambique's past (including Mapiko’s role as a tool to challenge colonization during the Mozambican War of Independence) and its vibrant present.
