Botswana: The Unique Dance of Vekuhane
The Basubiya are a rivering community (banoka in Setswana) found along river banks of the chobe. They have many cultural festivals where they sing and dance. They share similar attributes with wayeyi of the Okavango Delta, like what they eat and their lifestyles.
The Basubiya wear two piece clothing called mushishi. When they dance they move the waist either way to throw the ‘skirt’ high. The dance is called seperu. The tribe also weave baskets and do wood carving. They are found in the Chobe district and other areas of Maun like sankuyo and in the north east sankuyo.
