Malawiâ€™s Mudzi Cultural Troupe is expected to tour China in what promises to be a spectacular celebration of the two countriesâ€™ ties.
According to Mudzi director Hussein Gopole, the multipurpose group will leave for China in December to showcase a fusion of Malawian dances in collaboration with performers from that country.
â€œWe are happy to announce that in December, we will be heading for China in a cultural tour. We will spend four months showcasing an act, titled Our Malawian Story, which brings to the world the richness of our cultural heritage,â€ said Gopole on Friday.
The artist, formerly of Dygo and Village cultural troupes, said the act has been choreographed to mirror the centrality of the countryâ€™s cuisine, music, medicine, religion and chieftaincy to an overseas audience.
Last month, the six-year-old group announced change of name from Mudzi Dance Troupe because now it also comprises painters, potters, weavers, carvers and singers.
According to Gopole, 15 members of the 17-strong group are expected to make the Malawi-China Dance Tour.
