Morija Arts and Cultural Festival returns September 26-30 2012. Stay tuned for this year’s festival program!

An annual event not to be missed, the Morija Arts and Cultural Festival was first held in 1999. The main objective of this festival is to bring people of different views and backgrounds together to celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of Lesotho. The intention of the festival is to showcase Sesotho culture, boost tourism, and to encourage craft sellers and small scale manufacturers. It is an opportunity for Basotho of all ages and backgrounds to demonstrate the richness of their culture. The Morija Arts and Cultural Festival is a contemporary display of the richness, diversity, and vibrance of Basotho culture and Lesotho’s heritage over the past two centuries.

2011 Morija Arts and Cultural Festival, held over four days from September 29-October 2, was a great success. It featured traditional dance competitions, theatre, poetry, art exhibits, a film festival, music and more!

The Friday night’s Music Mix included Liquideep, Stlofa, Mthibo, Dunamis, Max Mora, DJ Tseko, DJ Counterforce, DJ Dall T, and Damario.

On Saturday, the jazz and famo concert filled the amphitheatre to hear the sounds of Hugh Masekela, Oliver Mtukudzi, Puseletso Seema, Senqu
Jazz Band, Kanny Mamolepe, Mopristar, Bana ba Manka le Phallang, Thoriso Ralefu, Gayamb and Tsedy.

    Please give me a detailed festival schedule as I am particularly interested in the JAZZ but can also attend other festivities as well. A line-up, directions to Morija and nearby accommodation will be highly appreciated.
