Habari Gani? We are so excited to have you at WorldBeat Center's Taste of Africa event. This event will showcase African Food and Music, Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony, African Wine Tasting, Kemetic Yoga, Afrobeat dance and more! Please see our website for more details.
The goal of this event is to create exposure (especially in these unprecedented times where we are all adjusting), create community, preserve African culture and educate the San Diego community about African food and culture. We hope to build on this event and host 3 to 4 events throughout the year. We hope you will join us as we create the San Diego African Culture Coalition.
Harambee! Let's work together!
