A call from West Africa

Ljubljana, 13 & 14 December

The Baobab society aims to surpass the existing situation and the consequent society’s failure to understand tolerant coexistence by organising an annual international festival of African culture in Slovenia and act against the wider public’s prejudice through presenting cultural traditions and practices of African dance, music, multimedia performance art, innovative pedagogical approaches and expert and popular literature.
