STAR STUDDED PROGRAM CELEBRATES GUYANA’S INDEPENDENCE


(Thanks James for the info !!)

STAR STUDDED PROGRAM CELEBRATES GUYANA’S INDEPENDENCE

AT GUYANA DAY 2006

The Guyana Day committee, in collaboration with council member, Leroy Comrie of the 27th Council District, Queens, will showcase top Guyanese performers and entertainers in one big exposition of talent, seldom seen in one place, as it celebrates Guyana’s 40th independence anniversary. This event will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2006, at the Performing Arts Center, York College, located at 92-45 Guy R. Brewer Blvd, Jamaica, Queens, New York, and starts at 3:00 pm.

GUYANA DAY, as the event is called, was started in the year 2000, to celebrate our independence anniversary, and since then, has grown tremendously as a show of quality and class. It celebrates our rich cultural heritage as a nation, by encouraging our top artists to give of their best in portraying Guyanese culture, as we know it. Guyana Day also provides a forum for new and upcoming talent, who have embarked on a crusade to preserve and embellish the multi – faceted nature of our culture.

Guyana Day was born out of a desire to mold the varied aspects of culture in Guyana into one harmonious unit. It has embarked on a mission to create a genuine medium for unity and love, and possibly peace, growth, and development. The African drums and the Indian dholak speak the same language; we just have to listen with a keen ear. The dancing steps of comfa, chutney and kathak demonstrate the same excellence, finesse, and artistry; we just have to pay more attention to the intricate details. Guyana Day serves as a platform upon which Guyanese culture can come together, instead of allowing forces of division to cause each unit of our unique culture to drift apart, creating chasms so wide that they will eventually become too difficult to bridge.

Guyana Day brings together diverse, multi – disciplinary Guyanese artists of all ages, from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, who will present traditional and folk expressions, and new works, inspired by our experiences in the USA.

The impressive line – up of artists features: Lady Guymine, Mahadeo Shivraj, the Trinity Band, Romanee Kalicharran, Impressions Dance Co., Marlyn Bose Dance Group, Denise Ramdawah, John ‘Slingshot’ DrePaul, Hilton Hemmerding, Akoyaw Rudder, Ivan Harry, Rickford Dalgetty, Rose October, Tony Ricardo, James Richmond, Seopaul Singh, Ted E. Jones, Rick Ramdehal, Rudy Ramnarine, Shanti Sewnauth, Fashions by Monica Sanchez, AND LIVE FROM GUYANA, MICHELLE ‘BIG RED’ KING, GUYANA’S #1 SOCA QUEEN.

Join us in this expose of Guyana’s cultural heritage. ADMISSION IS FREE!
