Umama litshipa

Umama litshipa

The mtshotsho dance completely absorbs the interest of the young male and female Gcaleka dancers who sing and dance with a simple rocking action from one foot to the other. The dancers add rhythmic hand clapping and the guttural roaring sound (similar to eefing in North America). These Gcaleka are from Old Idutywa District, South Africa.
