About the film

The ramshackled narrow streets of Mafalala  have been filled by migrants for generations. The Tufo group portrayed here brought their women's song and dance tradition from Nampula in the north.  They have changed over their years in Mozambiques capital Maputo and so too has their tradition.

The issues raised in the film

What is Tufo? What happens to a tradition such as Tufo when it continues to evolve in a new context?
