The Hebrew Family of Guyana Sisterhood recently celebrated its 18th Annual Evening of Elegance under the theme ‘Celebrating Cultural Diversity’ at the Georgetown Club.
According to a press release, the evening’s events included models eloquently displaying classical and contemporary cultural, casual, and evening garments depicting snippets of the cultures of Amerindians, Africans, Chinese, and East Indians.
Entertainment was provided by “the soulful sisters and brothers from the Hebrew Family of Guyana, the House of Israel, ACDA and Kenrick Cheeks,” the release said. In addition, Charmaine Blackman charmed the crowd with beautiful renditions from Bob Marley and Etana, just to name a few, while Indus Voices entertained the audience with a beautiful love song.
The release said the fusion of various African drums and the Indian tabla saw guests leaving their seats to join in an impromptu unity dance to the beats. This was probably the highlight of this year’s event, it added.
Meanwhile, Heavenly Foods Soul Vegetarian restaurant catered for the night’s event that allowed for the guests to taste delicious cuisine from each ethnic group.
