Lineup and Details for Jazzlines Presents: Vula Viel plus support: Dan Wilkins

Vula Viel (vʊ’la vi:’ɛl) means Good is Good in Dagaare, the language of the tribe in Upper West Ghana where Bex Burch lived, farmed and studied for three years. Now it is the name of her group featuring the best of London’s young music talent: Dan Nicholls (bass synth/keys), George Crowley (sax), and drummers Simon Roth and Dave De Rose. Their intensely rhythmic music is an engaging mix of African, electronica and minimalist influences.

Based around the Gyil (the Dagaare xylophone made of sacred lliga wood) Vula Viel brings the powerful ancient Dagaare music into the 21st century and the resulting music will engage, entrance and excite your soul. Good is Good is their debut album and they sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

'Vula Viel is part of an intriguing trend to re-investigate and re-introduce African elements afresh…. fascinating, sometimes entrancing, and entirely danceable.

These players have already created a niche on the busy world jazz scene that’s all their own' - Jazzwise

In support Dan Wilkins will perform a solo set on Kora.

Doors 8pm. Music starts 8.30pm
