Rwandan Cultural Festival

KATHERINE VEGA

Brisbane felt the color and happiness of Africa with the annual Rwanda cultural Festival event which this year celebrated 10 years of encounter.

The Rwandan Association of Queensland Inc (RAQ) held on Sunday the 10th anniversary program at the Mary Immaculate Community Centre. A family evening full of dancing, traditional costumes and songs, showing the culture of Rwanda.

Event organiser (name removed on request), was pleased with the assistance of the community and all those attending the event because the ideal is to show their culture and let everyone know the richness that this has.

“The idea of the event is to share with the audience the culture of Rwanda and show our meals, traditional dress and dancing” she says.

“Rwanda has a lot of things to offer the country and everyone is welcome to this event”.

With the sound of drums and traditional music, the afternoon was accompanied by President of the RAQ, the representative of Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Freya Ostapovitch and among other special guests feasted their palates with a typical dinner Rwanda.

Among the most attractive shows were Intore warrior Performance, Rwandan Kids dance, Polynesian dance and Burundian Drumming that filled applause from the audience.
