Bankra Cultural Fest 2023

August 12, 2023

The Bankra Caribbean Culture Festival features traditional folk forms and experiences from different Caribbean territories. Inherited from the Twi language of Ghana (bonkara), a bankra is a large, woven basket made of indigenous materials in the islands of the Caribbean and is often carried or used as a display for a wide variety of produce, usually colorful and tantalizing to the eyes. This is exactly what this festival replicates: the largesse beauty of the folk cultural represented from each island.
