The Hunter African Communities Council is hosting a spectacular celebration in October called Halala the City of Newcastle. Africans from eleven different countries who live in the Hunter wish to join together in bringing their amazing music and dance to Newcastle. Its a showcase of diverse cultures, rich cultural heritage and traditions as there will be collaborations of African, Indian and Aboriginal music and dance.
Halala the City of Newcastle meaning Celebration of Diversity in The City of Newcastle, welcomes your presence to this vibrant Music and Dance Extravaganza. The event is going to be held on Saturday 8th October 2011, 7.30pm at the Hunter Theatre, Broadmeadow.
This major community arts program is a platform for local African youth to share the stage and join in friendship with indigenous performers and local talent from Newcastle. The aim of this production is to break down barriers and bridge the gaps in our community. This show will contribute to promoting social cohesion, respect and tolerance in the Hunter Region.
We are very fortunate in having amongst us a world class Artist Director originating from Cape Town South Africa, a Djembe drummer from Senegal and a Mozambique song-writer and vocalist.
Africans in Newcastle wish to give back by donating the proceeds from the event to charities supported by the Newcastle Sunrise Rotary Club, a community service organization.
Definitely an exciting night of entertainment, not to be missed!
The Major Sponsor for our event is The Newcastle City Council and ABC 1233 Newcastle.
