The new evening performances aim to reveal more about the country’s music, dance art and cultural heritage, especially since this announcement comes after the Angola Art Music Festival, which was revived by famous artists, including Daniel Nasimiento, Clapito and Guillerme Mamboya.

“We want to showcase our culture and traditions to the world, we will bring to Dubai all kinds of Angolan music and dance, such as kuduru, simba, kilapanga, chianda, as well as traditional dancers in order to share that with the world through Expo 2020 Dubai”.

Angola participated in the “Losovonia” Festival for Portuguese-Speaking Communities, which was held at “Expo 2020” during the period from 14 to 16 October. Portugal, Mozambique, Brazil and East Timor.

The Angola Pavilion is located in the “mobility” area, and explores the history of the African nation linked to the authentic cultural heritage of the “Chukwe people”.

The indigenous Chokwe people have preserved their cultural roots through beautifully repeated drawings of sand grains, which embody their ideograms, the language of Angola, using grains of sand that have been passed down through generations.

“The idea of ​​the pavilion is based entirely on the ancient tradition of making sand drawings, known as (sunna), and each drawing represents a lesson, knowledge or wisdom to be passed on to the next generation,” said Kahina Ferreira, director of the Angola Pavilion at Expo 2020.

And she continued, “What really shows the richness of humanity is the fact that the image of the flower in the sand drawings (Suna) is very similar to the (Expo 2020) logo, but in our (Sona) language, this flower represents the moment when the king asked for the hand of the future queen to become his wife.”
