Vula Viel (v?íla vi:í?l) 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 Londonís young music talent: Dan Nicholls (bass synth/keys), George Crowley (sax), and 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 ancient Dagaare music into the 21st century and the resulting music will engage, entrance and excite your soul. Good Is Good is their debut album and they sound like nothing youíve ever heard before.
