Photo: HANNAH SPYKSMA By HANNAH SPYKSMA The city's biggest cultural festival is kicking off in style with a multi- cultural football tournament. Football enthusiasts from all around Auckland have been com- peting in a world cup-style compe- tition in the lead-up to the Auck- land International Cultural Festival, which takes place at Mt Roskill War Memorial Park on March 27. Because football is the main activity in our home countries, it is good to have a fun tournament here in Auckland and learn about differ- ent cultures and make new friends,'' referee and player Muqtaar Mohamed says. More than 30 teams have been involved with pre-festival games, with the top four groups playing for finals places during the festival. The day also includes cultural performances, ethnic food stalls and a variety of free events from 10am until 5pm. Even if his team doesn't qualify, Ethiopian sports and cultural club member Biruk Belachew says the whole concept has been well worth it. We will most definitely come down and support each other on Sunday, that's what the whole tour- nament is about.'' Like the sporting get-together, the festival aims to give multi- cultural Auckland a chance to know its neighbours. As well as a football tournament, highlights of the day include Indonesian shadow puppets and the introduction of a Thai tradition called loy krathong, where par- ticipants get to make their own wishing well. Organiser Helen Cheng says holding a festival is a good way to learn about different cultures. Because Auckland is one of the most diverse cities in the world, it is hard to know every culture -- this is awaytogetatasteofsomeofthe traditions associated with each one.'' She is particularly looking for- ward to performances by Kiwi artists Don McGlashan and Nick D. Known for his hit television show Making Tracks, Nick D will be reversing the concept for the festi- val. The show took him to countries around the world, where he collab- orated with artists to mix up Kiwi music with local style. On Sunday he will be on stage with a local Eth- iopian artist, this time mixing up African beats in a live recording. There will also be a diverse range of ethnic food stalls available, with sponsors Malaysia Kitchen pitching in to promote Malay cuisine.
