WOMAD Singapore 2005, I just wanna have some fun

It has been a while since I had some fun the way I like having fun. I was at the first two WOMADS in Singapore and I went again on Friday night. There seemed to be much more world music fusion than straight ethnic music, but the bands were great and I really had loads of fun. I took along my 350D with my 70-200mm lens and had some fun shooting the acts too. In professional photography, this is where I began, shooting the performing arts. Shooting the arts seems simpler than what I do for a living now, but it felt good to get back to my roots. I was once again taking pictures of awe-inspiring musicians. I am finally posting some more images. Nothing fanciful, but these are pictures of joy for me. Enjoy. :)

Akim El Sikameya, from Algeria. The first act I saw that night and still my favourite.

Drummer Bill Cobham from USA.
