Flavours on Greville St, Prahran on Saturday 16 March 2019 from 3-9pm is an event that celebrates cultures, traditions and heritage from around the globe. It's a day of live music, performances, cooking demonstrations, food and craft stalls, kids activities, and sensational live acts on the world music stage and more. Best of all, it's FREE.
Join Greg Hampton from Charcoal Lane for a cooking demonstration, and enjoy Greek treats by the punk princess of pastry, Anna Polyviou. Kids can enjoy the free Foost cooking classes starting at 3pm (commencing every half hour until 6.30pm), making bliss balls with native ingredients and learning about fun, healthy food. Market stalls and food vendors will have sweet treats, handmade crafts and great culinary samples. Don't forget the local business owners in the vicinity and see what they have on offer.
For high energy entertainment, the world stage will have acts like Black Jesus Experience who are an eight-piece band that blends traditional Ethiopian songs with contemporary dance grooves. Romanes Canes joins the stage with a seven-piece party band with a unique blend of Gypsy, Arabic, Bollywood and Turkish music with Balkan fusion style arrangements. There's also a choir in the mix with South of the River Choir who celebrate diversity and harmony through a shared passion for singing. Expect rhythms of Africa, traditional African American gospel and original Aussie compositions.
Indigenous Hip Hop Projects (IHHP) who have been working extensively in Indigenous communities around Australia since 2005 will grace the stage, along with Samoan dances form Tama Tatau, and a mixture of pop, RnB, and global First Nation sounds from DJ KYAANZ. A full evening of fun and entertainment. Parking spaces around Prahran are not the easiest to find, so check here before you travel, for road closures.
