Event Description

Mmino wa Setso is a visual documentary on indigenous African music and dance. This 44 minute documentary encompasses all categories of indigenous African music and dance theory across the ethnic divide. The film is executive produced by Molepo Traditional Dance Cooperative and directed by Mahlaga Molepo and features practitioners, as well as Professor Madimabe Geoff Mapaya of the University of Venda, Department of Music.

Mapaya’s academic articulation, knowledge on indigenous music and dance has a way of drawing one towards the art form that nears extinction, while creating interest in African musicology that has been marginalised from tertiary institutions in South Africa and many parts of the world for centuries. The professor is also a composer, who uses a combination of modern technology and ancient traditional instruments, to produce distinguished, yet original sound that preserves the ancient musical sound of the Northern Sotho/Bapedi people. Geoff Mapaya, as simply known on stage - composed a special Afro-Jazz soundtrack 'Ya' warang ke mang' for this film, featuring 'Dinaka' music and dance instructor/practitioner, Mashegoane Molepo.
