ABOUT LUMINA VOCAL
Singing outside the square
Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Lumina has developed an international following via recordings and the internet. With five physical and two electronic CDs published and over 200 tracks available online, Lumina is listened to by hundreds of people every day and has over a million views on YouTube.
The most popular works are those from the medieval period, but the contemporary Australian music is also getting steady exposure. This is what Lumina is about – sharing wonderful music with the world, seeking out moments of magic, challenging listeners with new ideas, and giving both old and new composers a new voice.
When did you first discover / when did you start singing?
My earliest memories of singing are 'There's a hole in my bucket' with Grany while I helped with the washing (she even had a mangle) and the 'Let's Sing' books at Primary School
Why do you enjoy singing/what do you like about singing?
I love the many emotions you can feel and share when you sing - the nuance of the human voice and that personal connection. I feel both exposed and liberated - challenge and joy intertwined.
