Culture encompasses the customs, arts, social institutions and intellectual achievement of a collective group of people within a shared geographical and historical background. Culture is what connects us and enables a feeling of belonging and familiarity.
The Caribbean culture is unique as it is a “melting pot” of various ethnic elements from Africa, Asia and Europe. Every academic year Western University’s Caribbean Students’ Organization hosts an epic event where we showcase the rich culture of the Caribbean region through song, dance, art and food. It is among one of our most anticipated events and a lot of planning and effort goes into making it worthwhile.
The Mustang Lounge is usually jam-packed with members and well wishers of the club who come from all over to watch the show. Guests flock from neighboring cities and some even fly in from the Caribbean itself to attend the event! Attendees have the opportunity to witness our dancing segments and experience a taste of our carnival with the costume modeling performance. Dinner is always a selection of the finest west Indian dishes and is accompanied by the sweet percussive sounds of the steel pan.
Mark your calendars for January 18th, 2020! Take a journey through Caribbean for one night - come bask in the warmth of our people and marvel at the spectacle that is the Caribbean culture! We hope to see you there!
