"The cultural Association “Join Angola” was born in Benguela in June 2018 and aims to promote Angolan culture around the world, showing the best that this country has to offer. The Association is made of young Angolans and foreigners, and collaborates with different local and international actors, including dance schools, artists and cultural groups."
