SA Embassy in Thailand participates in the Thailand Festival 2011

The Embassy co-sponsored the hosting of Thailand Festival 2011 held at Suang Luang Rama IX, Bangkok, to celebrate His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 7th birthday cycle anniversary (84 years). This international event combined top quality international and local performers who brought a diverse flavoured cultural sound. The performers included  Frans Bloem of Holland, Garth Taylor of Zimbabwe and South Africa, Hibiki of Japan, Lisa Lavie of Canada, Maske Electric String Trio of Australia, Nuntida Kaewbusai and Rock Opera stars, Viva, both Thais and also our own South African Freshly Ground. The South African promoter, Colin Law, brought several of these artistes to the Festival.
Ambassador Gibson and Mrs Gibson together with other Embassy staff attended the Festival which was held from 03 - 05 June 2011.
The Embassy received appreciation from the main organiser for the meaningful contribution towards the success of the Festival. Freshly Ground, not well known in Thailand, performed here for the first time and took the audience by storm when its performances got everybody in the over 500 seater auditorium dancing. Embassy staff, led by Ambassador Gibson and Pam Gibson, displayed their diverse South African dancing talents. The group closed the show with the famous WakaWaka song, leaving everybody reminiscing about the 2010 FIFA World Cup and leading to many compliments and positive comments about South Africa, the Rainbow Nation.
