Luna Paige, founder of Iluminar Productions – releases new Afrikaans single and music video – 7 November 2016, tour between 17 November and 4 December
2015 and 21016 have been busy years. After the release of Luna’s 5th CD, Borders & Beyond (2014), she focused her attention on the development of stage productions Die Ander Konsert(2015) and Korreltjie Kantel (2016). The success of these productions (Woordfees, KKNK and the Freestate Arts Festival) motivated her to establish her own production company by name of Iluminar Productions. Luna approached Denise Barnes (manager of Chris Chameleon) to become her partner. The company is now officially 11 months old and together with the already existing productions Die Ander Konsert and Korreltjie Kantel, 3 more productions are being developed.
Listen to ‘Gee my Ritme’
Music lovers can look forward to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, which will be performed by the music group World Café (Petrus de Beer on violin, Schalk Joubert on bass and Stanislav Angelov on accordion). This production can be heard on national radio station RSG’s annual on air arts festival in November 2016. A CD will also be released in 2017 which will go hand in hand with a national tour and performances at prominent classical and other festivals.
A brand new production will be making its debut at the Woordfees in March 2017. In this show music and art lovers can expect stories and music by Luna Paige, Pops Mohamed and award-winning animation artist, Charles Badenhort aka Bittervrug. Producer Luna Paige decided to tell necessary stories which highlights the connection and disconnection between people, families and the wider South African community. Konnexi! will also tour across country throughout the course of 2017.
2016 production Korreltjie Kantel – a music production which shares the love story between Ingrid Jonker and André P Brink – has been reworked and will be released in CD format in 2017. This project was made possible and will be presented in partnership with RSG radio station. The album release will be followed by a national tour and is supported by Concerts SA.
Luna Paige and blues pianist, organ player and songwriter Simon Orange are currently working on an interesting music production which will make its debut in the second half of 2017.
Furthermore, Iluminar Productions organizes musical entertainment for clients of all sorts (corporate and festivals). They will also be arranging tours for 2 UK based bands who will be visiting South Africa in 2017.
In the meantime, Luna still composes her own music, tours and performs at festivals and music theatres. In February she released her first Afrikaans single Groot is jy for the year. This song was play listed on numerous radio stations and the video can be seen on Kyknet’s music channels.
On the 7th of November Luna releases her new single, Gee my ritme. The song is about the humans’ relationship with music and rhythm. The release is followed up by performances in Prince Albert, Nieu-Bethesda, Bethlehem, Pretoria, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth (18 November – 4 December 2016). In this show Luna sings her own original material, presents them in a chronological order so she can tell stories about her professional journey in the industry and share glimpses of her personal journey through life (see her gig list below).
Gee my ritme will be available on South African online music store and cell phone app www.MiTracks.fm, as well as i-tunes and various other music sales platforms – as of the 7th of November. Feel free to have a look at the music video on Youtube on the 7th of November.
