Sounds of Africa festival is creating a cultural experience

The festival will be bringing the best of African art, music and food to Melbourne.

The Sounds of Africa Festival will be hitting Ceres Park in December to showcase an interactive community hub for African culture and a smorgasbord of authentic food, music and art.

Expect plenty of dancing when the quad percussion attack of Auscecuma Beats hits the stage, as well as Zimbabwean wunderkinds Neyne Konecto, and Melbourne house legend DJ Chris Ng.

The festival offers plenty of family-friendly activities with opportunities to learn the music-dance amalgamation of Kimboza, traditional board game Ludo or to gather round for a bout of African storytelling. Topping it all off is the delectable samples of African food, including soya, Ethiopian and Sengalese cuisines. 

SOA takes pride in the environmental sustainability measures it is incorporating into its festival, including ways of limiting those pesky, non-degradable plastics.

SOA festival hits Ceres Park, East Brunswick on Saturday December 15, with tickets available via the festival’s website.
