St Paul's African House at 54 Poplar Avenue, Shepparton is the place to be on the
4th of June 2016 from 1pm to 5pm. Presented by the Australian Burundian Community in Victoria Inc it's about the ABCV reaffirming their bonds with Burundi and its culture through many a great performance from women's dance groups and a famous drumming group. Sample some traditional foods and discover the cultural attire.

This spectacular woman's day event will blow you away with the sounds of 'Ingoma' the powerful and distinctive traditional Burundian drums. The Ingoma is a drum covered with a membrane of animal skin, and the shell or resonator is a hollowed out tree trunk, the umuvugangoma, which literally means 'the wood that makes the drum resonate'.

Burundi is a small landlocked country in east central Africa bordering Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The two distinct ethnic groups there are the Hutu and the Tutsi. Come along and discover more about the Burundi culture, enjoy the food and sway to the beat of the drums.
