South African wines were showcased at the 23rd Freedom Day celebrations. South Africa is now the eighth biggest wine producer in the world and its vieyards account for 4 percent of global wine output.

Soul Sounds, a choir based in Colombo, performed at the celebrations. They performed a beautiful rendition of the national anthems.
