On Saturday, October 21st, the Worldbeat Cultural Center hosted its annual Taste of Africa celebration. The event was full of culture, music and food. The sounds of African music filled the air, as DJ Francois provided the vibe. Many of the attendees were dressed in beautiful African prints.

This event is held annually, to provide attendees with the taste of African culture, allowing them to explore the many different African traditions and customs. There were plenty of activities for the onlookers to participate or just witness. They provided Kemetic yoga, afrobeats dance, stilt walkers, a jollof rice competition, Ethiopian coffee tasting and live performances.

“It is important for us to celebrate African culture through events like this. It connects us to our past and aligns us with our present. I appreciate events like these because it brings us closer together as a community and as a people,” said one of the people attending.
