MASVINGO – Masvingo will this year be hosting the 10th Jibilika Dance Festival, founder and director of the event, Plot Mhako has said.
The event will be held on August 25 and 26, 2017 and this is the first time that Jibilika is being hosted by Masvingo. The theme is Our turn.
"It is historic that we are hosting the fastest growing festival in the Ancient City. In 2015 the festival moved from the traditional Harare venue to Bulawayo and last year it went to Mutare," said Mhako
He said the decision to bring the festival to Masvingo was informed by the abundant talent that the province brought forward in the last 10 years and the keen interest that the people have in the event.
"Masvingo is also centrally located, making access for people from all parts of the country easy," said Mhako.
Some groups from Masvingo that have participated at the event are Prototypes and Zvazvinhu which were involved since 2013.
Winners in the Solo dancers category will go to France later in December
