I took about 1300 pics - a small selection in two posts:
The Bash started at midday and when I arrived the music was already beating-out and this Nama lady was dancing alone on the grass, seemingly in a world of her own.
Namibia's cultural diversity was highlighted by people in different costumes - here two Owambo Ladies make an entrance, swaying and dancing to the music.
Herero ladies in bright dresses - the dresses originate from the German colonial period of our history and are based on the fashion of the time.
Baby on mother's back, secured by a strip of goatskin.
A group of Nama people perform a traditional dance.
A local TV channel was there - here a presenter is interviewed.
After the traditional dances, the live groups started performing. They seemed to be all Namibian artists and I must confess I didn't know any of them - it became apparent though, they were well-known amongst the younger generation.
It was a very hot day and at about 3 pm the artists took a break. Games were organized for adults and kids and I slipped away for a few hours to find some shade.
I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the quality of our local musicians - I should try get out more ...
Our own reggae band, I wish I knew their name.
