2015 Festival



June 16th, 2015


Ufunuo is a well known uwaki muheme group from Majeleko, the same village as the famous nindo group Nyota. Ufunuo is famous at the festival, as well as in Dodoma region for their movement designs and clever or sharp performances; in western terms, choreography and stage presence. According to the CAC Staff, no other group can compare with Ufunuo’s choreography. They are to be imitated, but few are able and many will find the attempt hard. One reason for this is Ufunuo’s long history in the festival; this is their 6th year to perform. The first two festivals saw only groups from Chamwino perform and Ufunuo was one of the first groups to participate when the festival expanded to include from groups outside of Chamwino. With this much experience, they are definitely a group to watch.
