Press Conference of the 10th Venezuela Week @ No Black Tie

BY Cecilia Qianqian IN , 28 comments

The Venezuelan Week celebrations will take place from 19 October to 31 October 2015. Now in its tenth year, the Venezuelan Week is one of the largest Latin American events in Kuala Lumpur, offering a myriad of happenings such as concerts, a gastronomic festival, exhibitions, film screenings, seminars, a futsal tournament, as well as the famous Venezuelan Party



In line with the objective to bring both countries closer together, the Official Opening Ceremony of the 10th Venezuelan Week in Malaysia will have its great start on 19 October 2015 at the Craft Complex in Jalan Conlay, with a showcase of Venezuelan and Malaysian Latin jazz, handicrafts and sampling of finger food, giving a glimpse of what the 10th Venezuelan Week has to offer.

This year’s festival will feature Venezuelan jazz trumpeter, Michael Simon, leading his own quintet of prestigious Malaysian musicians. In collaboration with No Black Tie Records, the Venezuelan Embassy will be launching a live recording project with Michael Simon, entitled 'Destiny's Will', the first ever Venezuelan-Malaysian collaboration that will introduce Malaysia jazz lovers with his rendition of Latin jazz.





The most alluring event for those familiar with Venezuelan Week, especially Malaysians, is the gastronomic festival.In order to make the 10th Venezuelan Week bigger and more vibrant, the gastronomic festival will have not one, but two chefs from Venezuela; Chef Federico Martin Tischler and Chef Enrique Limardo.
From October 22 to 31, 2015, the Venezuela Gastronomic Festival will be presented at the Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre Hotel & Residences, offering a wide and delicious range of authentic Venezuelan dishes, such as Polvorosa de Pollo, a unique Venezuelan chicken pot pie, Carne Mechada and Asado Negro, amongst many others. The Venezuelan menus are available in buffet form for dinner.

While Kuala Lumpur is taken over by the colourful Venezuelan music and food, the Malaysian public will also get a chance to learn and understand about Venezuela’s long history with the 3rd edition of the Simón Bolívar Lecture Series in collaboration with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), and also through an academic lecture in Universiti Malaya with well-renowned Venezuelan philosopher, Professor Josu Landa.

Universiti Malaya will also be the venue of an art exhibition called “Images of the Venezuelan Territories”, which brings together lithographic works of major artists, such as Armando Reverón, Matin Tovar y Tovar, Manuel Cabré, Federico Brant, Antonia Azuaje, among others.

Ambassador Manuel Guzman commented that, “The festival is a great opportunity for all to participate as it reflects that Venezuela is a diverse and vibrant country. We would welcome all to attend and enjoy the Venezuelan Week as we have a fantastic line up of entertainment, there will be plenty of Venezuelan culture for people to discover even after 10 years of organizing this event.”
