The Edinburgh Mela Festival brings many communities together to enjoy a diverse programme of music and dance which incorporates local and international acts, representing a wealth of countries and continents, from India to Africa to China, and the Arab nations.
This was such a vibrant festival held in Edinburgh. So much to see, listen to and taste. I love the vibrancy of this performers costume. This close up shot doesn’t show the full scale of the costume but I wanted to focus in on the detailed beading work.
