Africa Day

A Musical Celebration of Africa Day in Vienna

Vienna, Austria - At an Africa Day celebration on June 10, four Africans living in Austria spoke on the theme of the Rapprochement of Cultures between Europe and Africa: Dr. Habib Bakhoum from Senegal, Stella Attakpah from Ghana, DI Tutu Bukasa from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and DI Abdalla Sharief from Sudan.

This was followed with a concert by Barbara Alli and Afrococo, singing songs by Zeka Kangela from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Barbara and Afrococo are from Ghana. Their music includes traditional and contemporary African sounds featuring dancing and drumming. Their symbol is the African coconut palm tree, which represents the joy of life.

This event commemorated “Africa Day,” celebrated on May 25 by the African Union.
