The Chope ethnic group from Mozambique, remains the only minority conservative of Timbila practice (wooden xylophone).
In Africa and in Mozambique more specially most of the culture has remained oral. Consequently music conveys all emotions, aspirations and human knowledge. Each of the numerous ethnic groups of Mozambique has managed to keep its cultural identity.

One of them the Chope has been able to protect the richness of its timbila orchestras. They live in the only place in the world where people can attend concerts of dozen of wooden xylophones played together.
