Kulamba

Famous for its Nyau secret society dancers, the Kulamba festival celebrates the Chewa thanksgiving that is held on the last Saturday in August.

In the Undi village, the Chewa people, mostly in Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique, come together and young women perform initiation rituals into womanhood. While the ceremony is going on, male masked dancers move through the crowds.
