African art, culture and culinary arts are on the program from August 9 to 26 in full colorful splendor: during the Africa Days on Danube Island, the continent presents itself at close quarters.
For the fifteenth time, the Africa Days Vienna offer a colorful program of dance performances, concerts, exotic dishes, an African bazaar and much more. Ziggy Marley, Jo Mersa Marley, Patrice, Kaled, Hans Söllner, Jamaram, Nnenka and the group LaBrass Banda are just some of the many stage highlights. The African Royal Ballet Djiby Kouyate from Mali enchants its audience with traditional dances and harmonious singing.
The African bazaar offers the African attitude towards life you can touch: here, you'll find colorful, traditional fabrics, African fashion, masks, drums and jewelry, while foreign smells of food waft through the air. In addition to drum and dance workshops, an extensive children's program with children's make-up, creative workshops, camel and pony rides provides varied entertainment.
The organizers of this colorful event are particularly keen to show the beauty and reality of the African continent and at the same time set an example for tolerance and understanding between cultures. Under the motto "Austria for Africa", Charity Days will be held again in 2019: voluntary donations will be collected at three montages with free admission.
