2nd Annual Taste of Africa
Taste of Africa: A Tribute to Fela Kuti
With too many negative representations of Africa, entrenched in images of war, disease, poverty, and famine, our festival seeks to redress the balance and highlight the fantastic range of cultures, foods, music, and artists that make this great continent one of the most vibrant and emerging in the world.
Taste of Africa aims to show Africa before it was colonized. It aims to bring unity and celebrate the diversity of Africa.
