Native Pratics of Mozambique

Creativity, Spirituality and Culture to resist climate change

Native Practices of Mozambique: Creativity, Spirituality and Culture to resist climate changeÔÇŁ is a project that develops research and audiovisual documentation of current cultural practices of different ethnicities from the three regions of Mozambique (north, center and south), in traditional communities that They have a rich and vast amount of music, dances and rituals, mainly linked to their work and spiritual activities.
Bantu traditions are alive in contemporary Mozambique and have a lot to tell us about possible futures and how to get there.
What strategies do these people have to continue these practices? And what is the impact of climate change on their ways of life?
We want to understand, beyond strategies, how these climatic effects influence the times of rituals or even how these situations leave cultural and artistic marks in each territory.
The Mozambican Native Practices Project: creativity, spirituality and culture to resist climate changeÔÇŁ is funded by the Sound Connects Fund, an initiative of the Music in Africa Foundation (MIAF) and Goethe-Institut. The Sound Connects Fund is made possible with the financial contribution of the European Union and the support of the Organization of ACP States
