Wednesday 19th July: Africa Utopia at The Southbank Centre

Africa Utopia is a free annual festival celebrating the arts and culture from the African Diaspora at The Southbank Centre.  There is a market of independent traders with a whole range of products from Kente textiles to Shea butter cosmetics, beaded jewellry, letter-press prints, photography and books.  There was a fashion show of new emerging designers and block party of music and live performances on the embankment stage till the end of the day.  The final song to be played out was by Fela Kuti which was a perfect soundtrack for our dancing feet in Fela socks!!!!
