For those of you who are not in the know, there are many great things about East London. One of them is the major developments which are taking place just in time for the 2012 Olympics. And the other is the huge mixture of cultures within the East London communities.

Unlike in some other parts of England; East London has got it going on when it comes to eating food and enjoying music from other cultures from across the globe.

From Chinese, Indian, to Brazilian and many other cultures including Caribbean. East London is the place full of cultural mediums for your soul to enjoy till to your hearts content.

Today I draw your attention to an event which is taking place on Saturday 22nd May 2010 Called ‘maKumba‘ @ New Empowering Church, 1a Westgate Street, Hackney-(off-Mare Street), E8 3RL.

MaKumba is a cultural explosion of Brazilian Samba Rock! The event which is being launched by aKwareLa who started off as a team of three international friends who met in London. The name aKwareLa was inspired by a Brazilian song by the artist Ary Barroso called “Aquarela do Brazil

maKumba is the Brazilian Samba Rock Night with a fantastic line up including the live bands, Dj’s, Capoeira dancers and a collection of exotic Brazilian photography.

Adriano Trindade will be live with full band:
