Welcome to the website showcasing and promoting the intangible cultural heritage of the Murle people of South Sudan.

Under the auspices of British Academy funding, this website is intended to offer a space for learning about Murle cultural heritage, and a space to hold a conversation about these. Through the angle of the Murle age-sets, it showcases annotated photographs, audio and video recordings of Murle songs, dance, oral histories and scarification practices, discussing how these have been changing, adapting and reflect connections to a global world.

The website was officially launched in Juba in 2022.
