Venezuelans in Barbados celebrated their country’s independence anniversary with a cultural evening at the Frank Collymore Hall, presenting a free public performance by the Venezuelan group Fundacion Aje.
The show was a cultural expose of African music and dance by a group founded by the Venezuelan master Juan de Dio Martinez, an expert in African religions who was recognized by UNESCO as a Latin American expert on African culture.
Keeping up the tempo were dancers from Barbados’ own Israel Lovell Foundation and Danse Nationale Afrique.
An added touch to the evening was the work of Venezuela-born Barbadian artist Marilda Weatherhead, wife of hotelier Bernie Weatherhead, who mounted some of her finest pieces in the foyer, together with paintings by Norma Farmer and Yazmin Vizcarrondon.
