Vula Veil in Leeds

Vula Veil
The Wardrobe, Leeds
Saturday 20th July 2019, £8.00

Bex Burch brings her unique energetic and intense vibe to Leeds Wardrobe for the first time with her band Vula Viel as part of the Leeds Jazz Festival. Vula Viel means "Good is Good" in Dagaare, the language of the tribe in Upper West Ghana where Bex 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), and imbued with the music of Steve Reich, Bill Laswell and Arthur Russell, as well as jazz.Support is from Leeds favourite salsa band Laz Camaradas
