We Are One (WAO) Festival - August 19, 2017
We Are One (WAO) Music/Culture Festival brings together the Latino and African descent communites for the largest ethnic cultural festival in New Hampshire.
Connecting neighbors through food, music, dance and culture weaves the fabric of community and makes us "better together."
Building Community, Creating Connections, Better Together
Africans and Latinos have many cultural connections.
Latinos have a language bond that threads together the many diverse, national, cutural and ethnic differences that span the Latino communites in the Western Hemisphere. With many common cultural practices, indigenous and African influences makes each unique.
Many African victims of enslavement speak Spanish due to their colonial inheiritance and many Spanish speakers are of African descent. There are also unique national, cultural and ancestral traditions from our African, European and Indigenous heritages.
Afro, Latino, Indigenous, we all know that we are "Better Together."
