Asia Day – performers

by on November 30, 2012

We had some awesome performances on the day. A local karate academy demonstrated their  techniques through kata.

A Vietnamese friend recited and sang original poetry, and his daughter translated for us. It was beautiful.

A local kung fu group charmed the crowd with lion dancing, and wowed us with their dances with weapons, all to the accompaniment of an amazing and ear-splitting percussion group which they brought along. We couldn’t take our eyes off these dancers!

A Chinese Church choir from Campsie sang two Christian songs in Mandarin, singing in harmony. Beautiful.

Our own Veronica sang a beautiful song in Cantonese, accompanying herself on piano. She’s a clever girl!

Last but not least, a group of Japanese Soran dancers stole the show and won many hearts with their colourful, energetic, fun and co-ordinated dance routines. Their outfits alone were enough to impress. But these guys were so into it,were so obviously enjoying themselves, and they had their little kids taking part – it was like a whole-community dance. Stunning!

It was quite a full and rich program, and the crowds lapped it up.

We should also mention the excellent performances that were going on inside in the karaoke bar. Among others who took the stage, our Vietnamese neighbour Nguyet revealed her hidden talent: a golden voice!
