WALA means Life
15 Jun 2013 | Saturday 7:30pm to 9:30pm
This exciting 5 piece percussion and dance ensemble present a high-energy and dynamic performance featuring drumming, dance, percussion and soaring vocal harmonies.
Wala means ‘life’ in the local language of their home town of Accra, and the suitability of this name becomes clear as you experience them in action – loving and celebrating life through music. Surrounded by about twenty drums played with hands, feet and sticks, Wala brings their instruments to life as they share a fusion of traditional Ghanaian music and dance depicting the life and soul and rich heritage of their ancestors, blended with their own refreshingly contemporary and original compositions.
