Lamma @ Rockit Festival   (photos by Lamma-Gung)



THREE Lamma bands playing at the recent Rockit festival in Victoria Park: Garoupa, Nude and Polyrhythm. And the famous native-Indian Tipi from Lamma made an appearance as a chill-out place for Lammaites and backdrop for another great Drumjam by Kumi & friends.


Garoupa made it into the SCM Post as the Pick of the Day, described as "Lamma-based band Garoupa open the Rockit Festival, with a mix of original acoustic-based blues/rock/ funk and Moroccan songs."

The SCMP even used this photo I shot of them during their gig in the Bookworm Café on July 15, but in B/W only.


Enjoy these pictures of a weekend full of sunshine, great music, international & local bands and many friends from Lamma Island.
