Celebrating Multiculturalism in South Australia

Festive season is on and it’s all happening in Adelaide. Rundle Mall was host to the 2013 Multicultural Festival on Sunday 3rd of November which was supported by the Migrant Resource Centre of SA, The Government of South Australia, Rundle Mall and the Adelaide City Council.

It was perfect weather as Rundle Mall was transformed into a sea of colour and excitement, showcasing South Australia’s cultural diversity through music, dance, cultural heritage, arts and crafts and culinary delights.

The free event explored the unique and wonderful sounds of world music and dynamic performance across three stages including African, Indonesian, Russian, Irish and Indian dance, choir and music performances, a Chinese Lion Dance and Burundian drumming, amongst many more.

Salt Magazine particularly enjoyed the jam session by local band Afro Oz Musica who are a fusion of African and Australian flavours. This unique mix of musicians come from across the globe including Zimbabwe, South Sudan, South Africa, Thursday Island in the Torres Straits and Australia. Their reggae vibes were vibrating through Rundle Mall and had many onlookers on their feet!

SALT Magazine is an African-Australian Community News Magazine, created to provide print and online news and information on a broad range of issues of interest to the African community in Australia as well as to the wider general public. Our main aim is to act as a platform for the voice of the new and emerging African Australian communities, providing an African perspective to Australian topics. We wish to highlight African refugee success stories and encourage community development by exploring the challenges faced by new arrivals.
