Ten Years of The London Lucumi Choir
The London Lucumi Choir, directed by Daniela Rosselson, celebrates its 10 year anniversary. The choir and was originally conceived and co-created by Daniela together with percussionist Dave Pattman and singer Martha Galarraga of the Conjunto Folklorico Nacional de Cuba in late 2006. I started singing with the choir shortly after its inception – I know that my first gig was in March 2007. Here are a selection of photographs I’ve taken over this period featuring present and former choir members and collaborators. Rather that being an official document, this is a personal record, including everything from portraits to random fashion moments. Although I’m in the process of whittling down the amount of photos in my archive, I’ve decided to include quite a few in this project so as to convey an eclectic, behind the scenes patchwork quilt, honouring my experience with the choir.

I am now adding images as I continue with the project – extending beyond the 10 year anniversary to the present day. In addition to images taken in the last few months I am also introducing photographs from the archive that resonate with me at the moment.
