Today, January 24, is World Day for African and Afrodescendant Culture. The day celebrates the culture, history and heritage of the African continent and African Diasporas around the world. 

In Latin America and the Caribbean, there are several elements inscribed on the Lists of the 2003 Convention whose practitioners and bearers are descendants of the African Diaspora such as the case with the Language, Dance and Music of the Garifuna and the “Tumba Francesa” (French Drum) of Cuba. Other elements of living Afrodescendant culture can also be identified in the Creole culture through the continuity of Christmas Bram, music, dance, food, and traditional crafts. 

Happy World Day for African and Afrodescendant Culture!
