In the days surrounding the main weekend local teams will engage in soccer, volleyball and basketball knock out competitions, traditional pony racing will be held at the track close to town, traditional products will be on displayed and available for purchase, and a flag raising ceremony will take place on 11 August to officially recognise Oecussi Day.

Estou a fazer trabalho de campo em Timor-Leste para estudar a sua música tradicional. Estava a tentar perceber qual a melhor altura para ir ao enclave e eis que dou com o seu blogue. Obrigada pela informação e pelas belas fotos.
Agradeço qualquer informação que me ajude no meu trabalho!

Manuela, oecusse tem realmente algumas particularidades musicais. Em algumas aldeias, como cutete, que fiquem em zonas muito montanhosas usam-se uma espécie de flautas de bambu para comunicar. É muito interessante.
