How about a spending your Sunday enjoying some Filipino food and sipping Georgian wine, whilst listening to African music? If that sounds good to you, you might want to join the free family-focused Kultur Fusion event in Frederiksberg (Den Gule Villa, Dirch Passers Allé 2) on Sunday 10 June at 14:00. It will be showcasing local, national and international artists and performers.


Get your African swag on by getting an African-style haircut. Dance teachers Naby Bangoura and Sellasi Dewornu will make sure you get that booty shaking and will help you to try some different African percussion instruments. Kenyan-born Chéché Gachery will present her clothing line – she uses African fabrics and incorporates western styles to her funky and stylish clothes. “I want my clothes to give people the experience of shopping at an African market,” Gachery said.  After the fashion show, you can relax and listen to different types of African music played by DJ Ernest and Kenyan singer Vqee.


But it’s much more than just African culture. Sarah Kolding – who says she’s inspired by traditional Indian embroidery, weaving techniques, colour and texture – will present her women’s clothing collection. And you can paint with the famous Danish artist Kristian Vodder Svensson.


Kolding and Gachery met last year around Christmas. They talked about making a joint fashion show with a fusion of cultures as the focal point – and so the idea was born. “It is exciting for Denmark and the Danes to learn more about other people’s cultures,” Kolding said.


Kultur Fusion is a family-focused event, so there will be plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained. Kolding says she thinks it’s important for kids to explore their creativity. 


All the activities are free and there is no need to sign up.
