"A journey from Zigala to Zemambiquo", two imaginary countries united by this bridge made of shared songs and hopes and inhabited by citizens of the world who generously contribute with their identities and their roots to the enrichment of future common territories.
"Bumba" is a cultural cooperation project made by creators from Galicia and Mozambique, with over a decade of experience.
This project enhances and disseminates a modern image of Mozambican culture, particularly the Machopis ethnicity, to which belong the members of the Timbila Muzimba collective. Through research, mutual knowledge and the creation of a joint work, an intercultural dialogue is established between the musical forms of modernity and the tradition of these people. Those traditions, being ancestral, also treasure an extraordinary potential for contemporaneity and for the preservation of cultural identity in a globalized world.
This work is added to the dialectical process undertaken by many young Mozambican artists (such as Timbila Muzimba), which committed to their cultural heritage, seek to build bridges between tradition and modernity and at the same time, to create quality bonds with other cultures such as ours.
