Space2b Laneway Market Festival 2020
Celebrating Cultural Diversity Week with a heady mix of world music; Latin dance; global food; craft and design market; henna tattooing and an art Exhibition featuring African artists.
Gambian instrumentalist, Amadou Suso will whisk you away with the magical sounds of the Kora. Having acquired knowledge through generations of Kora players, Amadou is heavily inspired by tradition and culture.
High voltage African drumming will be performed by Seidu Mohamed and students from St Kilda Primary School. Seidu has delivered drumming workshops to the students over the past few weeks, leading into this performance.
ForrÃ³ Dance Australia will captivate audiences with their demonstrations of ForrÃ³, a traditional partner dance from Brazil. Originating in northeast Brazil, Forro has evolved to include different musical beats and dance styles. Similar to the waltz, it's an intimate dance conducted in pairs.
Continuing with the Latin influence, Los Parceros Duo will play a selection of music from Latin America and Spain that will get audiences swinging. The Duo use a variety of instruments such as Spanish guitars, cajon, ukuleles, bongos and other percussion instruments to perform traditional/folkloric music to more contemporary styles.
The Laneway Festival includes: Indian, Somali and Iraqi artists offering beautiful face paintings and temporary henna tattoos, Global foods and over 20 stalls of Australian designed products from local established and new migrant designers and artists.
