The festival, organised this weekend by development co-operation organisation Kepa, fills Kaisaniemi Park and Railway Square with international music, topical discussions, hundreds of exhibitors and delicious food.
The free festival is for many a veteran visitor also a street food festival. Samosas and dumplings, bean and banana dishes, peanut butter soup, falafels, kyyttö cheese burgers and artesan ice cream are only a portion of the options available for keeping the festival audience nourished. Vegetarian food is served at every stall.
A bold combination of soul and fusion jazz as well as east and west, Kanta dAb dAb is something that cannot be missed. The band is raising awareness to help Nepal’s musicians, who have suffered from the earthquakes.
