Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION

Get your Folklorama on at News Café

  • Print

If you want to feel irie this afternoon, drop by the Winnipeg Free Press News Café.

The most popular performer at all of Folklorama, limbo dancer Prince Jo Jo from Ocho Rios, Jamaica, will be on fire -- perhaps literally -- at 2 p.m. today.

He's the feature act at the Africa/Caribbean Pavilion at Grant Park High School.

But those won't be the only positive vibrations at the café.

Representatives from the Indo-Caribbean Paradise Pavilion at Sargent Park School will be on hand at 1 p.m. to discuss its entertainment, its curry-flavoured dishes and the frosty cold Carib beer and rum. Yum.

Three separate acts will perform on the News Café's stage -- some drummers and two sets of dancers.

The Indo-Caribbean performance will be streamed after 1:30 p.m. right here.
