A theatre piece staged by a local group was one of the highlights of the inauguration of Cabo Delgado’s new Tambo Tambulani Cultural Centre, refurbished with new spaces for the practice of dance, music, theatre and painting.
The centre marries what remains of the old structures with imposing new buildings housing an office, gallery, classrooms, a recording studio and two covered stages with dressing rooms.
The centre was reconfigured with the support of Anadarko and its partners to enhance the development of Cabo Delgado communities and address the existing lack of space for cultural activities.
“This new, modern building provides optimal conditions for the practice of theater, music, dance and painting, and provides an excellent way to enrich and diversify cultural and artistic practices, through local and national productions,” Anadarko representative Alex Jossias said at the opening ceremony.
Cabo Delgado provincial governor Celmira da Silva said the long-awaited facility, whose arrival was also hailed by cultural stakeholders, would serve as a postcard for tourism in the city of Pemba.
“What we see here is a robust, attractive infrastructure that pleases the eye, nourishes the soul and nurtures creativity. We cannot but rejoice that we now have the conditions to achieve our vision of a prosperous, welcoming Tambo, a national and international reference and a harmonious symbiosis of culture and tourism,” Victor Rapouso, coordinator of the center, enthused.
Manuela Soeiro, director of the Mutumbela Gogo theater group, also took part in the ceremony and promised success to the artists who will benefit from the initiative.Source: O País
