Venezuela shared a part of its rich culture with Barbadians on the occasion of that country’s 203rd anniversary of independence last week.
It was the third successive year that guests attending the anniversary celebrations at the Frank Collymore Hall were treated to a concert by a top Venezuelan group – this year, a performance by the renowned musical group Ensamble Gurrufio.
In his welcome, Venezuelan Ambassador Jose Gomez Febres reaffirmed his country’s commitment to fostering strong cultural and economic ties with the Caribbean.
He said: “The idea of culture as a driver of change and music as universal language leads us to celebrate Independence Day with concerts like this one by Ensamble Gurrufio.”
