Countdown to Diwali!

We’re two weeks away from the opening of this year’s Vancouver Celebrates Diwali festival on November 3rd! Over the next fourteen days we will be posting information daily that features this year’s performers. Today we’re introducing one of the festival headliners: STICKS N’ SKINS.



Sticks N’ Skins is brought together by percussion master Sal Ferreras. This ensemble has been performing together at festivals and corporate events for the past few years. During the Olympics they had the opportunity to perform in the Team Welcome Ceremonies held for each nation that arrived to the Olympic village. Imagine the percussive sounds of India, Africa, Brazil, Cuba, and the First Nations people of Canada all coming together as one! The big finale will take place on the Roundhouse’s new Outdoor Pavilion with a candle-lit diya procession on November 10th!
