Weekend Shooting: The Les Mangelepa concert @GoDown Arts Center,Nairobi

Hello folks! As promised,here is the post on last weekend’s gig at the GoDown Arts Center. I am not a rhumba fan but I actually did enjoy the gig. It was lively,good smooth music and a very warm and involving crowd. I’m glad I did get to see Les Mangelepa live.

So, before the event started we goofed around and caught some shots

As night fell,we proceeded to the concert
