Episode 3 | 56m 56s | Video has closed captioning.

One of the African countries most connected to dance, Mozambique maintains many exciting styles. Disembarking in Maputo, we met the Xindiro Group, which specializes in Xigubo dance, inspired by rituals of African warriors; the historian AtanĂ¡sio Nyusi, who keeps the Mapiko tradition alive (a dance with wooden masks); and a female group that disseminates the culture of the Tufo dance.
