Notting Hill
From the Notting Hill Carnival in London. Started in the late 50’s by Jamaicans and other Caribbean immigrants to the Uk to combat racism through carnival, it is probably best known for the riots in the 70’s which provided the Clash with a record cover. It is now the largest carnival in the UK held every August.

I wanted to do something for Oktoberfest, but other than lots of beer, there’s not much there there. So an accordion! She’s Natalia Tena from the band Molotov Jukebox, tho better known in this house as Nymphadora Tonks in the movies of Harry Potter.
