Ziloka & Kilti Ka are very pleased to invite you to this special get together. Indeed, in addition to our usual musical and danse sharing, we have the honour to have in our midst Mr. Felix Cotellon, founder of the annual “Gwoka Festival” in Guadeloupe and cultural activist. He is curently agitating to inscribe Gwoka on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity for the year 2012.

So, come and join us for our usual ” yonn a lot” food sharing luncheon from 12 pm. Please note that although we can bring our own food, the beverages will have to be purchased at the bar.

At 14:30, Mr. Cotellon is going to give a short lecture on Gwoka and its significance in the Caribbean cultural inheritance. This will be followed by a Q and A/debate around Gwoka, the relevance/influence of our cultural background in a city such as London, or whatever we would like to discuss ( this is Ziloka, the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and always positive).

At 16:30, we will be a drum/dance jam session.

Books in Creole will be available on the day, thanks to our partner Gwosiwo Press.

Admittance FREE. Nevertheless, you can support the event by making a love donation.

We hope to see you all.
