“A long day immersed in the rhythms and colors of the East Asian Festival.”
From May 30 to June 2, at the Fiera di Roma, it was held the seventh edition of the festival, after the great success of April in Milan. Two pavilions that have welcomed thousands of visitors to see the shows of martial arts and folk dances. To frame the event, dozens and dozens of stands, foods, clothing, informational, make-up, spices, decorations, and anything that belong to the East.
Among the most exciting performances that have followed without pause, between the two stages of the two pavilions, from morning till evening, we remember the dervish dance Tannura from Egypt by Emad Selim, the Japanese drums of war TAIKO by Masa Daiko, the incredible dancing masks from Sri Lanka, the sublime voices of Chinese and Japanese sopranos, the rip-roaring Bollywood dances, the lush costumes of the Thai and Indonesian dancers.
Truly a trip without breathing in the magic of the Orient.
