About

We welcome back Vula Viel, surely one of the most energetic and focussed groups on the UK scene.
'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. Vula Viel's music is intensely rhythmic; a uniquely engaging mix of African, punk and minimalist influences. Based around the Gyil (the Dagaare xylophone made of sacred lliga wood). Hear the music from their upcoming album 'Do Not Be Afraid' for the first time at The Lescar. Book early!
