Ten Years of the London Lucumi Choir in Photos

To begin 2017, I am posting a link to the Blog of one of the Original and longer standing Members of the Choir, Mish Aminoff. Mish is a photographer and has documented the Choir and it’s members since the beginning. Please check out her wonderful Blog, which includes her work regarding the Choir and the members who have made it what it has been and what it is now. Also check out Mish’s other subjects also. We look forward to more years of singing and making music and taking more photos.

This year we will be launching our third CD. A Video and a special release coming soon. Watch this Space. We are also on the look out for more COMMITTED members. ( by which I mean, those that are prepared to put in a little bit of work and time). Get in contact!!! 

Here is a preview of Mish’s Work ( © Mish Aminoff 2016)
