Festival of Cultures 2012
This is what everybody has been waiting for: The Festival of Cultures 2012 in Magdeburg!
The Festival of Cultures 2012 in Magdeburg was once again a big and successful event. IKUS and students from 22 countries represented their cultures at the festival and charmed the guests by their international spirit.
Exotic music and oriental dances made a wonderful impression and created a pleasant atmosphere. The show was a perfect chance for meeting and experiencing other cultures.
African drummers and Bulgarian dancers motivated to audience to take part in the show, to dance and to have much fun. Additionally there were many hearty dishes from all over the world in all tastes. There were for example Chinese spring rolls, Hungarian goulash, Russian Pirozhki, Polish strawberry-cake, sweets from all over the world and drinks of all kinds. Everything was delicious!
At the end of the festival the Los Cuban boys heated up the audience with Caribbean music and animated everyone to dance or to chill and listen to the music.
IKUS thanks everyone for this successful festival. It would be impossible to make such an event without voluntarily working students from a lot of countries, without interested guest and without our sponsors.
