27th August 2011 sees the return of the World Part Event to Museum Green (opposite National Waterfront Museum) in Swansea. This is an all day spectacular held every year honouring the multi-ethnic communities living and working in the City and County of Swansea. The event will be held between 12 noon and 6pm.
The event has been made possible because of a good partnership effort between the various ethnic minority communities of Swansea including lead been provided by City and County of Swansea and Swansea Bay REC.
You can expect to see local artists performing on a stage alongside some of the established professional performers. You can jiggle to a performance of African drums followed by Bollywood dancing or listen to the classical tones of a local Swansea University performing group. But the big name this year to enthrall the crowds is Hartinder Dhami, an internationally known Bhangra artist known for his innovative Bhangra representations. H Dhami is a young and fresh bhangra artist with an international fan base already rocking to his tunes. Dhami’s father is the legendary Palvinder Dhami from the Bhangra band Heera. H Dhami has been performing on stage from the age of six alongside his already popular and well known father.
Alongside this will be marquees holding demonstrations with an international flavour including two of the Celtic nation states i.e. Wales and Ireland. There will be representations from the African, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Indian and Thai communities amongst others. The Arab and Muslim communities of Swansea will be making an extra special effort as it is the month of Ramadan for them and therefore their participation will be whilst they are observing a complete fast during sunlight hours.
City and County of Swansea and Swansea Bay REC would like to invite everyone to witness this special extravaganza and see for themselves how a cohesive community should live and work together.
