World Music sampler - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 23 February 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Over the next few days I will run a sampler of music acts on the main stage at the Multicultural Festival. We shall take in Reggae, Afrobeat and Latin styles.

In this first shot, you see the percussion player with Sol Nation. This band plays a spirited mix that includes reggae and East Timorese folk song. The bridging of cultures is their aim. And it's easy to dance to!

Beauté de la jeune femme percussionniste et de son geste! Le spot bleuté qui la surplombe entre en résonance avec le jaune qu'elle porte!
Bonne journée lumineuse et chaleureuse!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

There is something light and uplifting about this portrait, I think it is the area around her eyes.

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

I love her hair too... and the look in her eyes is key - it tells us that she is good enough to play with heart and soule and she can dream and enjoy while playing....a drummer with less experienc would have a more tense look in her eyes! I would have loved to be there - Thank you for taking us there!!
