“One of my discoveries for the 2015 London Jazz Festival” ~ Gilles Peterson

Vula Viel 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 musical talent: Dan Nicholls (bass synth/keys), George Crowley (sax), and two 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 music of ancient Dagaare into the 21st century, resulting in a fresh new sound that will engage, entrance and excite your soul. In the hands of Vula Viel, good is very good indeed!
