Sotho Dancers

Sotho (South Sotho or Basotho) people are concentrated in the Free State, Gauteng and Eastern Cape Provinces, with small groups in Namibia and Zambia. The dancers wear colourful print cloths called Seshweshwe. Dancing is performed to the lesiba, which is the national instrument.  The men often perform the difela which involves a solo dancer.

Another aspect of the Basotho dancing is the Mokhibo, where the women do a kneeled dance.
