Oxford Mela - Celebrating Diversity in Oxford 2017

With Rita away in Morocco the line up for this (our 7th mela) was just the 3 of us at this time - Kay, Pips and Cat.  Dancing here since 2011, this years event was a sea of colour, dance, music, singing, stalls selling clothing, jewellery, henna, delicious food and happy smiling faces, and was held at the Rosehill Community Centre - it was simply heaving and was again !!

Our performance included improvisation with baskets, followed by an impromptu piece of dancing amongst the audience with the aim to get some to come up and join in, followed by a well deserved drink and yummy Indian food.

Thank you Kanta for inviting us to the celebrations.
