Mhara Marimba are an Auckland group playing and dancing African Rhythms. Energy and joy, here at the International Cultural Festival in Mount Roskill. Sample them online!

Another day — another festival. So it seems. Apart from the Titirangi Festival and Titirangi Market, there was a big International Cultural Festival at Mount Roskill War Memorial Park.

Titirangi Festival of Music

This is the weekend of the Titirangi Festival of Music. I only could catch the last hour of the Village Day – the pictures might show that a great day was coming to an end as the shadows grew longer.

(See also pictures from past Titirangi Festivals.)

Schwyzerörgeli

The Schwyzerörgeli is a squeezebox diatonic button accordion used widely in Swiss folk music. This looks like a brand new instrument, expertly played by Albert at the Swiss Market.

(Pushes all the right buttons for nostalgia.)

The Auckland Swiss Market is by now a well-established annual event. Held at the Danish House in Penrose, it seems to have a subscription to fine weather, and yesterday the fourth Swiss Market was no exception. Lots of people, lots of flags, lots of fine food and all things Swiss.
