Book now: Vula Viel
National Centre for Early Music York
5 June 2016
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's the name of her group featuring the best of Londonâ€™s young music 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 create something new and vital.
This music will engage, entrance and excite your soul. 'Good is Good' is their debut album and they sound like nothing youâ€™ve ever heard before.
Indeed in the hands of Vula Viel, Good is very Good indeed!
