The 20th Anniversary of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) was celebrated at the Portuguese Embassy on May 12. The commemoration was a result of a joint effort of all “CPLP” countries with Embassies in Washington DC: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Portugal, and Timor-Leste. The celebration included an exhibition about the economic importance of the Portuguese language, regional artifacts, and typical gastronomy. The evening ended up in fashion with a lively musical show performed by Brazilian artists Cissa Paz and Rose Moraes, and Toi Pinto, from Cape Verde.
