The Afro-Heavens Creations in association with Sefhophe Practitioners in Theatre will hold a cultural festival Diloro, which will be held on July 14 in Sefhophe.

Diloro cultural festival is the celebration of Setalaote culture through song, dance, games, food, cuisine, attire, costumes, language and custom.

Festival organiser Chilly Segona told Arts & Culture that the main aim of the event is to revive the Batalaote culture. “The Batalaote tribe has not been known for so many years because they were under the Bangwato tribe hence they always refer to themselves as Bangwato,” he said. Segona explained that Batalaote tribe is from Sefhophe, Mmadinare and Kgaodi, with a few traces found in Serowe, Palapye and Shoshong. He stated that the reason the festival is referred to as Diloro is because this is the name used mostly among the tribe.
