Chagga woman

Somebody told me the she was Chagga. So i have asked for this translation into chagga (chaga, kichagga, kimochi, kimoshi, moshi, mosi, old moshi), the Bantu language of the chagga people (kichagga, wachagga or dschagga), in Tanzania and Kenya. 700,000 people speak chagga.

The Chaggas

This tribe, melting pot of various groups coming to the foot of Kilimanjaro, uses ingenious systems of irrigation in terraces, which sometimes earned them the nickname of Asiatic of Africa, and cultivates mainly cotton, coffee arabica, bananas and cereals. Their culture is rich in traditional musical instruments, drums and flutes, which they fashion with art, and use in joyful festivals made of dances. Their oral traditions made of legends are rich and varied.
