The London Lucumi Choir

The London Lucumi Choir is a Community Choir with a difference. It is a non audition choir open to all, that dedicates itself to singing songs to the Orisha ( African spiritual deities) and other Afro - Cuban Genres. All songs are taught to the Choir by ear, in a traditonal call and response fashion by the Choir's Musical Director and Arranger, Daniela Rosselson De Armas. No music is usually written down. The Choir is accompanied by Afro Cuban Percussion which is a fundamental element to the Choir, also unusual in the world of Choirs! Director of Percussion is Afro Cuban Master Percussonist, Javier Campos Martinez. The Choir has attracted people from all walks of life and from all nationalities. Although directed by Initiates of the Lucumi Faith, not everyone in the Choir is a practitioner and welcomes everyone. The London Lucumi Choir set a precedent in 2008 by being the only choir of it's kind to reach the Category finals of the very British BBC Choir Competition of the Year. Since then they have inspired the public with many performances at festivals, theatres and Charity Events. The most important part of their journey has been rehearsing, singing, dancing and learning together on a regular basis.
