African Quiver assists BNN-Vara with Swazi Reed Dance

The Kingdom of Swaziland is currently experiencing one of its most famous festivals, the Swazi Reed Dance or more accurately, The Umhlanga Festival.

A most colourful festival, it has reportedly seen the registration of over 90 000 maidens. While the festival is predominantly associated with exciting attire, it is severely misunderstood and often viciously portrayed in the international media.

African Quiver has been contracted to facilitate unprecedented access for television crews for BNN Vara whose intent it is to arrive at the festival with one set of expectations and leave with another and then portray it accurately.
