For this year’s celebration, we chose a very cozy albeit small restaurant with ethnic food “Tashkent”. We did get complaints afterwards that some members of the community missed out, lesson learned.
One of the notable guests this year is very talented Nancy Adejor. Nancy was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Her father is originally from Nigeria and mother is from Ethiopia were studying in Kazakhstan during the Soviet Union and decided to stay after they graduated so she grew up in Almaty. She speaks fluent Russian and sings in Kazakh.
