Visit Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Mela Festival

The Edinburgh Mela Festival will return to Pilrig Park, between 6-8 August 2010. Why not come along and join in the festive celebrations with the family, and experience diversity through the arts? The weekend will be jam packed with visual art and physical performances as well as live music, theatre productions and film exhibitions.  While soaking up the entertainment you can enjoy a wide variety of food from a world food market and really dig into the Mela, which is the Sanskrit word for ‘Gathering’ .

The Festival is best known by its South-Asian performances, but this year the festival will bring a taste of Chinese, African and other cultural arts. This aim towards diversity will promote the chance to explore and experience other cultures of the world, in a relaxed and laid back atmosphere.

In a world where artistic boundaries are being constantly challenged by important themes to create new possibilities, The Edinburgh Mela festival strives to feature such performances. This gives the opportunity for artists and performers around the world to show case their cultural and diverse ways. The Edinburgh Mela Festival is a world of creativity with a programme that excites, challenges and stimulates finding connections that unite us all.

Some events to look forward to will be a musical from New Asia from Singapore, belly dancing and Ghanaian Drumming. More diverse performances such as a ‘Scottish Bollywood-Desi Bravehearts’ and snake charming will also be on show.  And no Edinburgh Mela could be complete without its own catwalk for the multicultural fashion show.
