Angola: Preservation of National Cultural Traits Defended

Luena — artists, musicians and other cultural agents in eastern Moxico province were advised today, Wednesday, in order to continue to preserve the traits and cultural values of the region and the country in general.

Speaking at the National Day of Culture, January 08, the provincial director of Culture, Noel João Manuel, said the province encompasses various ethnicities translated into a vast cultural richness that characterizes these people.

For him, it is urgent to ensure the local culture to promote citizens with the ideals of peace, sovereignty and sustainable development of the country.

Noel João Manuel said the systems of multicultural values deeply fixed in the soul of the diverse communities that make up the people and that manifest in day-to-day Angolan people through beliefs, arts, above all, of their languages, represent the essential of identity national and should therefore be studied, valued and disclosed.
