Diwali in South Africa

In October 2012 Vancouver Celebrates Diwali was contacted by Naufal Khan, who produces a Diwali Festival in South Africa called Indian Spice. We’ve been in contact ever since talking about ways that we could connect our two festivals. Says Naufal: “It is so warming to know that despite the fact we are miles apart we share the same values in our efforts to promote unity in diversity.” Naufal has sent us this charming slide show / promo video of the performers and community members who are taking part in this very community-based celebration of Diwali. Please enjoy.
