OUT&about A feast of the exotic in Churton Park The sun shone on a feast of music, colour and dancing and the air was rich with the aromas of exotic foods at the Churton Park Community Association’s Multi-cultural Day on Sunday. Over 200 residents drawn from many parts of the globe took great pride in, and showed real appreciation for the polished performances from the many cultural groups that represent their community. Sam Manzana, the African drummer from the DR Congo, proved a real highlight. He demonstrated the meaning of the drum signals used to communicate in places like his own home village with no electricity supply or telecommunication networks. Then the crowd was able to join in, thoroughly enjoying clapping along with the lively drum rhythms he produced. Photos: Brian Sheppard
