Kenya Embassy Invitation to Swahili Day: Saturday 13th June at Bergshamra
Once again, the “Swahili Day” is here and on Saturday, 13th June, East Africans together with Swahili speaking people (including Swahili lovers) will congregate at Hjortstigen 1 in Bergshamra, Solna to celebrate the day.
The event, which will run between 14.00-18.00 hrs, has been organized by the Embassies of Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Mozambique while its Secretariat is at the Kenyan Embassy.
The theme of the 2015 Swahili Day is: ‘Women in Swahili Culture’. The organizers believe that promoting interaction and exchanges between different cultures creates an added avenue for enriching diversity and understanding.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate and showcase Swahili culture. Activities will include brief speeches, poetry, live music and dance, display of Swahili food, fashion and literature.
On the line-up for entertainment is Kababa Nkomba Gaby, Kabara Congas & Yaya Sella featuring Maestro Vumbi Dekula with his Ngoma ya Kilo Band which will thrill the crowd. Optional dress code is Khanga, Kitenge, Kikoi or Kanzu.
It is against this background that the Heads of Missions of the organizing Embassies extend their invitation to this special occasion.
