The country of Mozambique is located in southeastern Africa with a population of around 20-million people. Mozambique established the diplomatic relationship with China in 1975. The performing troupe from Mozambique consists of the country's emerging artists of the younger generation and those who are keen on the protection and promotion of Mozambican culture.
Apart from artists from Mozambique, the Yinchuan International Folk Arts Festival will also present troupes from other parts of Africa, as well as Russia and the U.S.
The festival also features screenings of both Chinese and foreign films, painting exhibitions, and handicrafts by folk artists around the world.
The Yinchuan International Folk Arts Festival runs until July the 24th.
