On 3rd December, the Wellingtonians will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this rich mixture of sounds and flavors at the 7th MIA Latin Festival, which will take place at Pipitea Marae, a beautiful and special Maori place.

There will be Latin American folk-dance performances by Danza MIA (our very own dance group), the Peruvian artist Soul Marita, and Chica la Cumbia band from Chile, among others. This year, MIA Festival will have a special event for children that includes face painting, Zumba yoga and storytellers, said the current president of MIA Paola Rojas.
