Sibhaca Dancing

Sibhaca dancing is vigorous and performed by teams of men throughout the Kingdom. Many schools encourage Sibhaca among the young boys who form their own teams and typically perform on special occasions. Sibhaca dancing involves the stomping of the feet in unison accompanied by traditional music and rhythmic traditional chants. The men wear colourful quilts and decorate their legs with mohair implements. A typical Sibhaca session can last up to two or three hours, with a variety of difference rotations, songs and styles performed.
