(That’s “Hello” in Zulu by the way.) So Mumbai just got itself an Indo-Afro Restaurant called “Ubuntu” and lounge and Bar called “Marimba.”

FYI Ubuntu is the African counterpart of Om and Marimba, is a musical instrument which adds a romantic quality to African music.

Spotted GJ, aka Geet/Gita Jivan (the owner, how adorable and oh-so-slightly goofy is her costume?!) food critic Rashmi Uday Singh, Alyque Padamsee, tele stars Alex and Shweta Keswani, Actor and model Aryan Vaid, the illustrious Mr. Pervez Damania, models  Hazel, Gazel, Konkona, Talat & Bina Aziz, Anil Dharkar, Timmy Narang, Naved Jaffrey, Gary Richardson (wearing what he must have assumed to be the dress code – an animal print tie) and Cindy Khajol in an animal print backless dress. Um… apologies to PETA, although I’m sure they meant well.)

(From the several oddly attired models the ultimate fashion victim award goes hands down to Gazel here who appears to have taken her role (given her name) a little too seriously. Also the ultra red lipstick is a little too vamp(ire-ish) no? Even Consul General of South Africa, Ms. Busi Kuzwayo attended the opening on Friday where South African drummers from the Drum Café drummed up a delight (I’ve tried the Drum Café workshop by the way SO FUN, do it do it!)


Drum Cafe: rhythm's gonna getchya!
