Trance dance and night of the spirits by holy people of the Sotho
The Cave of Fertility is a holy cave where sangomas or traditional healers of the Sotho people have lived for centuries. Pilgrims from all over Lesotho and South Africa come here to be instructed, enlightened and healed. The Cave is situated at an altitude of 2000 m on the border of Lesotho and South Africa. The 2012 film expedition organised by Spirits of Africa portrays the Cave and its inhabitants. It focuses on Josephine Moloi Malrato who heals people while in trance with the power of an ancestor who lives inside her. The film also portrays three other sangomas and a night of singing and trance in which hundreds of pilgrims worship in the cave.
