African Beats

Marrickville is one of most ethnically diverse areas in Australia. The Council organises several events through out the year to reflect the richness of the community including African Cultural Event. At Petersham Town Hall, people gather to see the line-up performances from Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Guinea and Zimbabwe. The pounding rhythm beats everyone’s hearts.
