The Belfast Mela returned to the Botanic Gardens for it's biggest event to date. Featuring a huge collection of artists, such as Eternal Taal, Desi Brave Hearts and Ulfah Collective, who are a Muslim Gospel Choir, the festival brings a favour of world culture to the city each year. The day also includes stalls, workshops and demonstrations for all the family. We chat to one of the event organisers, Mukesh Sharma of ArtsEkta, as well as the Lord Mayor of Belfast and Kamala Lakhdhir who is the U.S. Consul for Northern Ireland, about why they think the event is important to Belfast.
