Dubbed ‘Iwacu Heza’ which literally means ‘Our beautiful home’, the Bafumbira gathering is returning in its 6th edition to be held at Hill Top Naguru on May 27 2023. The 6th edition will also be graced by the Current Miss Uganda Hannah Karema Tumukunde.
The event has always been a contemporary cultural showpiece done twice in a year through art, traditional dance and folk to celebrate the Bafumbira/Banyarwanda.
The organisers, a group of vibrant youth, said, the much sought-after event seeks to bind them to not only “vibe” but also celebrate their Bafumbira heritage hence cementing a strong youth and a cultural network.
According to Gilbert Rwalinda the event organizer, this event aims at bringing together all the Bafumbira, Banyarwanda and Barundi in one space to celebrate their cultural heritage and also showcase their rich values through performing arts, dressing, and local cuisine while connecting the future with the past traditional practices.
The event will help the group to unveil their identity but also tap into the uniqueness of a young passion and energy of youth, through exquisite event experiences among others.
