S4C Mela Documentary!
In 2010, a special S4C documentary in Welsh entitled 'Digwydduadau 2010 - Cardiff Multicultural Mela.' was produced covering the Mela event. The Mela is held in Cardiff Bay, and in its fourth year, the event drew a crowd of over 30,000+. These sections include footage of various performers as well as highlights of the Mela. Cardiff Mela highlights on S4C Presenters Mari Grug and Morgan Jones will be delving in to the sights and sound of the events which is held in Cardiff Bay on 8 August. The programme is part of the Channel’s Digwyddiadau ’10 series which brings highlights from events all over Wales. “The Mela is a completely different event to some of the others covered in the Digwyddiadau ’10 series. As I find out more about the Cardiff Mela, the more I’m looking forward to attending for the first time,” says Morgan. “I like eating eastern food and it will be interesting to experience more of the culture of south Asia.” Performing on the Mela’s main stage will be some big names from the world of Asian music, including Imran Khan and the Bombay Rockers. Bollywood dancers will also be taking to the stage along with other dancers from the various traditions. With a fair, rock climbing wall, stalls selling all sorts of foods and goods and music workshops, Mari and Morgan will be ready to give anything a try as they mingle with the crowd.
