I was over in the
cradle of mankind, Naivasha town in Rift Valley province this past weekend, for work on the three day festival. Generally I had a great time, given my love for travelling to new places. The ambiance was amazing, quite artistic and inspiration filled! So many colors around the place. Check the festival details here : Rift Valley Festival
On arrival, got my lover Chamyet ready!
Location set-up a day before the festival...
Next to Lake Naivasha
The Second Stage
Given that I was working, I managed to catch a few performances starting with THE JUST A BAND
I call this the 'just a band- effect'
My daily Bantu knot out could not last me through the hectic weekend, I opted for a salon-done straw set to maintain the curly 'fro throughout the festival.
Hard at work...
Armature photo-edit attempts...
This particular tree was known as the'Love tree' people would leave love messages or otherwise for their loved ones especially
My messages ;)
My sole company while I worked through the night...
There was a massive turn out!!
Meanwhile at the bar...
Managed to catch this amazing band, Mokoomba from Zimbabwe, I fell in love with their well choreographed movements coupled up with great vocals.
On the final day,Blankets&Wine
The next day,a few hours before leaving for Nairobi
Kalenjin traditional dance...
What's a stay near the Lake without a boat ride?
Redbull, my secret to constant energy throughout the festival. The leather bag actually belongs to my father, he used to carry his Minolta Camera some 25years ago...
The result of a good weekend out of town and a boat ride: peace, tranquility and love :)
