On Saturday, May 21, the UChicago and neighborhood community gathered in International House for the annual Festival of Nations, a loud, colorful event featuring singing, dancing, and cultural performances. Among the nations represented were India, Italy, Egypt, Pakistan, Brazil, the U.K., the U.S. South, Palestine, Mexico, and France. Each had their own booths and cuisine for visitors to taste for a small price. FunkaDesi, a Chicago-based multicultural band, punched up the atmosphere with an eclectic set and saxophone-flute solos that had people spinning around the dance floor near the front of the assembly hall. It was a delightful and delicious afternoon.
