About the event

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 trio featuring the best of London’s young music talent: Jim Hart (drums) and Ruth Goller (bass)

Their intensely rhythmic music is an engaging mix of African, punk, electronica and minimalist influences. Based around the Gyil (the Dagaare xylophone made of sacred lliga wood), Vula Viel create something new and vital.

Their debut album garnered attention from The Guardian, Songlines, Jazzwise, FT, and the Evening Standard, and the support of Gilles Peterson and Iggy Pop. Releasing their second album Do Not Be Afraid in spring 2018, Vula Viel sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before!
