The Morija Arts and Cultural Festival showcases both traditional and contemporary Basotho culture with displays of music, dance, theatre and film at a variety of venues in Morija, including Morija Museum and the Thabeng Football Grounds.
Lesotho is proud of its cultural heritage and traditional dances. Watch out for the mokhibo, where the women dance on their knees and shake their bodies in response to drumming, clapping and singing. During the mokorotlo war-dance, the men stamp and strut aggressively, periodically leaping into the air.
