Mamana Mamanta in Adelaide…




Luna’s sent through some snaps of the launch of the Mamana Mamanta : Gradual Friendship tour at Tandanya in Adelaide. Loons, of course, went across for the opening – and to give a presentation for the public program component of the show…





Brenda, Brooke, Luna and John the night before the opening…





She had a lovely time catching up with the Adelaide glass mob, and is over the moon that the show is finally on the road. Next stop Bathurst…
