Posted by Emma on September 9, 2016 in Music | No Comments

WOMAD this year was one of the best. I was there for the third time shooting for Rhythm Passport and as always it was a joy to be a part of that team of superstars. Even without founder and key superstar Kia, who was at home waiting for the arrival of his first child. Apart […]

Portrait of the week – Daymé Arocena

Angelique Kidjo in concert

Posted by Emma on November 27, 2014 in Music | No Comments

I don’t think I’ve ever been so gutted to have to leave the auditorium after the photographers’ normal three-song allowance. This was clearly going to be an electrifying concert and, according to this review, it was. Next time I’m getting me a ticket…
