Chinese Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe were back in the capital and once again set ablaze the Celebration Centre with some fine music and dancing performances that thrilled thousands of spectators leaving them yearning for more.

They can dance, sing and perform better than most able-bodied people.

Notable among them was visually-impaired Yang Haijun who ably sang Alexio Kawara’s Shaina song in clear audible Shona – to receive a befitting standing ovation from the audience.

Even though they can play musical instruments of different kinds, their strength is in singing and dancing.

The group coordinated themselves to sing Zimbabwe’s national anthem.

Chinese Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Xin Shunkang, says the troupe’s visit will bridge the gap between people from different cultures.

Composed of more than 110 disabled performers, some of the dances showcased include yellow earth, butterfly lovers and ballet swans.

The Chinese Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe came into being in 1987 when some 30 disabled people who had a passion for arts were allowed to participate in the China Arts Festival.
