BY DARLINE DESIL
A mix of students, faculty, staff, alumni, the Fulton community, and international student host families gathered in Champ Auditorium on Friday for the 2015 International Show.
Student performances represented several countries on the continents of Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, and South America. The flags of students’ many different home countries were displayed on stage.
One of the performances was from a group of four males, consisting of three Nepali and a Colombian, who sang a song from Nepal.
A traditional Nepali dance was also performed during the show.
Another performance was a combination of singing and piano from Tjizembua Tjikuzu and Tumain Charles, who performed the song, “You are my African Queen.”
Luciana Fernandez and Ravina Kate performed an Indian dance and a Flaminco dance together. Martin Roa and Leila Dervisevic also mixed dances to perform both a salsa and a merengue.
Vocal performances continued with Jem Guhit’s song from the Philippines.
“I liked all of the dances,” Meili Tuyisenge, ’18, said. “It was very diverse, and I think that was the point of the show,” she said, adding, “Furthermore, I did like the fusion of the Flaminco and Indian dance, it’s very interesting how two different characters come together to reflect a dance. It is a reflection of the college and its diverse population.”
Htet Wei, ’19, agreed: “I really liked the Indian show. I really liked the Latino dance and the Flaminco and Indian mixed dance. It was just awesome.”
The show was hosted by Ntombikayise Msubo and Hussein Attara.
