The London Lucumi Choir celebrates 10 years collaboration with FireSoul Media

Over the summer we were working hard on a Video project. We were filming a Video to promote a recording which will be pre-released on the Movimientos Label next year. Our recording is a cover version of the Ibeyi’s composition, “River”. We were happy to collaborate with Husband and Wife team, FireSoul Media, who are Elio Peña and Rebecca Radmore. The filming mainly took place by the River Wandle, Mitchum in South East London and also in Queen’s Woods, where the lost River Moss Well had it’s Source. What has been achieved with low budget and limited time, was a work which is really beautiful thanks to FireSoul Media.
