People's Guild of Ghana @ International Day

I recently had the pleasure of participating in an International Day event organised by housing association HorizonAmicus in Stockwell, south London at the beginning of August.

It was a chance for my friends and I to share our knowledge of Ghanaian culture, fashion and history with others under the People's Guild of Ghana umbrella.

But we were not the only ones celebrating our cultural heritage. During the four-hour event, visitors listened to a local South London steel band, South Asian dance performances, and took photos with the Pearly King of Peckham.

There was a chance to sample cuisine from the Caribbean, Egypt, and Somalia as well as outstanding capoeira and samba performances from Brasil*(*Brasil spelt the Portuguese way*).

And check out this snippet of the colourful and energetic carnival-like performances (below). I had a quick chat to the dancers after their show and found out they are from the part of Brasil I visited, while I was living there....Salvador, Bahia - Viva Brasil!!!

The People's Guild of Ghana will be at Spitalfields market on 27 & 29 August to share more insight into Ghana's unique fabrics, jewellery and cultures. Click here for more information.
