CULTURE, Arts and Traditional Affairs department (Cata) will host the third successive heritage celebration event at Lotlamoreng Dam, Mahikeng on Saturday.
Acting department spokesperson, Vusi Kama said the initiative is geared towards getting communities to unite and celebrate their heritage under the theme “Human treasures and legends: Our living heritage”.
“With the South African Traditional Music Achievement Awards (SATMA) around the corner, the audience will be entertained by two of the nine Bokone Bophirima nominees. Mma-Ausi and Thaga-Moso will showcase their talents to secure votes for the awards that will take place on October 1 in Richards Bay, Kwazulu Natal province.
“This event will take place every Saturday this month. It is also part of the build-up event towards the second annual Mahika-Mahikeng cultural extravaganza in December 2016.
“Activities on the day include indigenous games, traditional music and dance. Most excitingly for the youth, there will be a demonstration by bikers. Kids will be entertained in a designated area with jumping castles. Members of the public are also encouraged to bring along their camp chairs and picnic baskets,” Kama said.
