Come celebrate the true spirit of Christmas on Thursday, December 10th at 8:00 PM at the Viking Club, with ‘Voz dos Anjos’, (The Voice of Angels). Singing a capella and accompanied only by the African drum, this choir of 50 young men and women will move you with their joyful sound. Directed by Mestre Jose Mendes, the choir will perform a combo of traditional Christmas songs in Portuguese, French, Kikongo, Kimbundu and Umbundu. Their second CD, Situaluaka II (When We Get There) will be for sale.
As with all our presentations, there is no charge, however in the spirit of Christmas, the Angola Field Group will hold a collection with proceeds going to help Angolan refugees fleeing from the Congo. We will hand the funds to the choir who are all members of Second Baptist Church which is working with sister churches in areas bordering the Congo, helping the thousands of refugees there. Also, last chance for some Christmas shopping: Tchokwe baskets from Moxico exclusive at the Viking Club * Irma Domingas’s hand crocheted bags made with re-cycled beer tabs * Angola color photo book in English/Portuguese * Huambo Dolls * hand embroidered linen gift items * Christmas decorations * grown-in-Angola soja * all for sale on Thursday at the Viking Club.
Come celebrate! Everyone is free to join. In close cooperation with the Viking Club, this presentation is offered free of charge. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are sold at the bar. Drink coupons are available for $10.00 AND $20.00 or the equivalent in kwanzas. For a location map of the Viking Club visit the Join Us.
