This is a 3D Model of Mosque 1 in Kua, Tanzania. The model consists of 5 million polygons and is textured. Be aware that this is a very large 3D model and requires a high end graphics card to view. The Kua ruins are all that remains of a medieval Swahili town located on Juani Island in the Mafia Archipelago. The ruins offer insights into an island civilization that saw Portuguese and Omani control as well as independence, enslavement, and eventual abandonment. Indicators of early settlement and trade—including Islamic and Chinese ceramics dating to the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and currency from mainland Tanzania—have been found in the ruins, while Portuguese accounts from the sixteenth century note the great wealth of the Kua people. The Zamani Project spatially documented some of the Kua ruins in 2018. The Zamani Project seeks to increase awareness and knowledge of tangible cultural heritage in Africa and internationally by creating metrically accurate digital representations of historical sites. Digital spatial data of cultural heritage sites can be used for research and education, for restoration and conservation and as a record for future generations. The Zamani Project operates as a non-profit organisation within the University of Cape Town. This text has been adapted from the World Monuments Fund website (https://www.wmf.org/project/kua-ruins). All work was carried out as part of the Kua Conservation Project: Co-Directors: Stephane Pradines (ISMC-AKU) and Pierre Blanchard (WMF). Partner institutions: Aga Khan University (AKU); Tanzanian Antiquities; World Monument Fund (WMF), Zamani Project (University of Cape Town) Then Zamani Project contributed accurate 3D models and maps of the site and structures to the Kua Conservation Program.

This is an interview extract from a focus-group interview with Gert van Zyl, Katrina van Zyl & Klaas van Zyl. In the interview Katrina van Zyl links riel performances to rain-making in the Bushmanland. She explains that the the riel is actually an eight-day riel, that’s how the old people did it. When they played and danced for eight days, after that eight-day dance, it rained. So, the riel is actually a rain riel because it was their expectation that it would rain afterwards. That is what they believed that the rain would fall after the eight-day dance. The interview was recorded by Engela Britz on January 20, 2018, in Brandvlei, Northern Cape, South Africa.This interview extract accompanies Engela Britz's (2019) minor dissertation entitled "Songs in the Dust: Riel Music in the Northern and Western Cape, South Africa. An Afrikaans translation of the interview is recorded below: Die riel is eintlik ‘n agt-dae riel, het die grootmense hom gevat, want as hulle nou daai agt dae gespeel het en hulle’t gedans, my suster, na daai agt-dae dans, dan reën dit. So, die riel is eintlik ‘n reën riel want dit het eintlik, daarna, dit was eintlik ‘n verwagting van hulle af. Dit is eintlik hoe hulle geglo het – die reën sal val na die agt-dae dans.
