No @CarnavalPueblo this year in Burgess Park for the 2nd year running, but no worries there are other fiestas happening locally!
A stripped-down version of Carnaval Del Pueblo is scheduled for the Coronet in Elephant & Castle (28 New Kent Rd, SE1 6TJ) on August 11th featuring performances and workshops. Headliners include Los Niños Vallenatos from Colombia, an 11-piece Colombian accordion band made up of 10 to 19 year olds; Cumbe, with Afro-Caribbean sounds from the Pacific Coast of Colombia; and Atlachinolli Dance, a pre-hispanic Mexico inspired dance group.
