Awesome Indies!!!



Baobab Youth kicked off the Awesome Indies Urban Festival for youth the first weekend of October. Along with breakdancers from Hintonburg and Montreal, the youth performed their South African Gumboot dance on the street outside the very hip Patrick John Mills Gallery on Friday night. A great community event that attracted locals and visitors of all ages. On Saturday they joined BOOM!, Propeller Dance and Rabab-e-Panjab for a groove parade throughout Hintonburg, which culminated in a collective performance at the Hintonburg Community Centre, showcasing brazilian rhythms, contemporary dance, West African rhythms and dance and very colourful Punjabi dance & percussion. Some great community connections were made…thanks to all especially WIAM who produced the Festival!
