The people behind the films

The Tufo group portrayed here brought their women's song and dance tradition from Nampula in the north to Maputo's migrant community of Mafalala in the south.  They have changed over their years in Mozambiques capital Maputo and so too has their tradition. The filmmakers behind this film are young women and men from the north and south of Mozambique. Through their ethnographic research and filming methodologies they have connected to the spirit of Tufo and thwe women behind the songs and dances.
