Maritime Bhangra Group to perform
Event set for July 30 to raise funds for cancer research
Namaste World and DiverseCity Multicultural Festival are working together to bring Maritime Bhangra Group (MBG) to Summerside on Sunday, July 30.
Namaste World, which made headlines in 2016 for dancing bhangra on the rocks of Peggy’s Cove and at Canada 150th celebrations, was created by immigrants as a tribute to fellow immigrants. Its purpose is to show life from an Immigrant’s perspective; the challenges they have to face while starting life in a new country.
Often, there is much more going on behind the scenes that doesn’t come to light, but is a major factor on some of the decisions the immigrants make. Where to live, where to work, learning a new language etc., all are major decisions one takes in a new country but what influences those decisions often gets neglected. The team at Namaste World wants to give an insight into the life of an immigrant and hope to get them the respect they deserve. Namaste World is a platform to shed positive light on immigration by representing success stories of immigrants, who have equally helped every country in it’s progress.
“We have wanted to bring Maritime Bhangra Group to P.E.I. for some time now, and we know that they want to come, so the DiverseCity Multicultural Festival provided the perfect opportunity,” says Gagandeep Sehgal of Namaste World.
Having completed very successful festivals in Charlottetown on June 25, and in Montague on July 16, DiverseCity Multicultural Festival moves to Summerside on July 30, 2-10 p.m., at the Wyatt Heritage Properties.
MBG will bring its highenergy dance and audience interaction performance to Summerside and as is their practice, will donate their performance fee to cancer research. The donation will be made in P.E.I.
Namaste World has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to accept donations:
