South Africa Heritage Day Family Picnic

Otto & The Mutapa Calling had the pleasure of entertaining the crowds at the South Africa Heritage Day family picnic this past weekend in Wimbledon Park. It was lovely seeing the diverse community of cultures come together in their beautiful traditional outfits to celebrate their heritage! Here are a few pictures from the day.

South African Heritage Day Celebrations in Wimbledon Park

South African Diaspora UK hosted a lovely get together in Wimbledon Park this past weekend to mark South African Heritage Day, also known as Braai Day. I had the honour of taking part and got to give a small performance with my niece, after which I set up my marimbas on the side and let the kids have a go too.

Afrotake Media put the following short video together to cover some of the day's events:
