Support the National Heritage Carnival event.
It is easy to misunderstand the word, CARNIVAL, and think it means the usual we see everywhere. No, this is the African Cultural way, we call it “Umhlanga dance”. When the youth and adults of the land display their strength, courage, beauty and determination to survive and exist together in a God given land.
You realize that it is a humble nation strengthening family bonds and friendship. They walk in a ceremonial dance of unity, fostering peace with one another in a single song and beat of a drum. You are suddenly moved at the innocence displayed in a unique way, not ashamed or fearful, but proud to be a creation under the sun.
This is Africa, beautiful and meek, patient and warm.
The ground echoes sounds of a single note and beat of a drum, it carries in the wind. The men stomp the ground in a powerful bare feet dance that make you feel inadequate, and practice is imminent. You feel the joy, you unite and find yourself in the middle of the dance, doing it too in singleness of heart. You are an African.
