Fiery Musical Luminations from Luminate 09

Greetings n Salutations,

This will be my final post regarding the Luminate 09 Music and Lifestyle Festival.

I must confess !

On the final night in the midst of an inspirational  set by Adham Shaikh, who’s music and my desire to capture pertinent images of Adham in full swing was my primary motivation for attending the festival, I lost a memory card containing 300 images of many of the artists and performers including Adham’s day set on the Sunday and Miharangi’ s powerful set on Saturday night plus a comprehensive  pictorial social commentary of the main 48 hrs of the festival.

Despite the commendable efforts of the organizers of Luminate 09 on my behalf the memory card is just that, A Memory!

So here goes for some pictorial highlights of the final icy cold evening of the Luminate 09 Festival, we certainly needed warming up and as you can see from the following images we were warmed up PLUS, PLUS, PLUS!

Much Gratitude To All Concerned……..

Hope you are well n happy.
