Some images from before and after the Lucumi Choir gig the other day

On Saturday The London Lucumi Choir sang at the V&A Museum of Childhood as part of the New Voices Festival for Refugee week. ┬áThe first image is of one the dancers we work with,Yolanda Perez, getting ready to perform as “Elegua”, the afro cuban orisha or deity. We start all our concerts singing one of the various Elegua sequences in our repertory.
