Sumalgy Nuro is  a Mozambican Maputo-based urban musician and dancer with a strong  background in traditional African arts who has embraced contemporary  music and dance through music-dance studies at MoNo Pedagogical  University (Maputo, 2013-2014) Kulturskolen Frederikstadt  (Norway,  2014) and postgraduate studies at the University of Cape Town (South  Africa, 2019 – 2021).  His interest is in the integration of music and  dance in multi-media works in which real time music and dance  composition forms the basis for a practice in which visual and audio  elements are seen as part of a continuum rather than kept in separate  boxes. His first love, African traditional music and dance, is the prism  for these varied explorations inspired by the old, but aspiring for the  new.
