Performed in a rural village in the Ncondezi river valley in the north of Mozambique: A wild energetic dance performed by masked dancers, representing 'bad spirits" who through their energetic and frenzied dancing taunt and scares the villagers. They are then chased away by "brave" youths, performing a dance with rattles all around them - thus the village is cleansed of bad spirits. after which the rest of the community joins in a circle dance of celebration and offerings are made in peace from the spirits.
