Rock Music - Rock Art

This is not really a blog, but three links to a trip to the Island of Lolui, in Lake Victoria, Uganda made by an art/music group.

Though I have'nt been to Africa the vibrancy of nature, music and people is something else, and the following two videos on Youtube captures the essence of a particular landscape. Part music, art, stones, sculpture, Neolithic rock art and modern rock art all can be found in both these short videos.

The sculptor Peter Randall Page, takes you through ochre rock paintings and musical rocks, Rocks that are almost the spitting images of Cornish Tors, his final sculptural work spiralling circles on two rocks is, of course, based on what we at the present moment in time think how some of our stone monuments might have been used, with the morning sun lighting up the patterns........

Part one; Eginja Eriyimba

Part two;

and the words to explain it all...

All the three destinations are very famous for the tourists. Above links which are given to take a trip are very interesting. Actually Africa is mostly famous for the vibrant nature, dance and music over there. We visited there in our last summer vacation, it was an amazing experience. Recently when we visited to the Karnataka India. We really enjoyed Carnatic Music over there. Posted by travel19
