Vula Viel

Vula Viel

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, 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 you’ve ever heard before. Indeed in the hands of Vula Viel, Good is very Good indeed!

Their new trio line-up and repertoire with deeper meanings makes Vula Viel ripe to develop their presence and profile across the World. Releasing ‘Do Not Be Afraid’ in spring 2018.
