THE URBAN RAJAH
Catch The Urban Rajah at this year's Belfast Mela. The Urban Rajah brings together a distillation of global culture, stories from a vibrant past fuelled by migration, ideas and trends, a celebration of the individual and a thirst for abundant life. The Urban Rajah’s philosophy brings together like minded people, who seek nuggets of radiance in every life. Exploring the new, cherishing the old and sparking conversations and connections, it’s the fabric of fine living.
