MEET THE ALBUM // RHYTHM PASSPORT PRESENTS VULA VIEL


The world music magazine, Rhythm Passport are always looking for new ways to support and spread the word about quality and meaningful music and give you chance to listen to it. So, we are more than excited to invite you to the first episode of 'Meet & Greet with the Album', their brand-new music series in collaboration with Grow, Hackney.

On Sunday 10th March, you are all welcome to spend an evening on the River Lee shore in the company of "Do Not Be Afraid" and its mastermind Bex Burch, bandleader of Vula Viel. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover some “new classics”, starting with the finely chiselled and eclectic second work of Vula Viel, which ranges from traditional Northern Ghanaian rhythms to jazzy arrangements, and a minimalist and avant-garde approach to influences embracing the entire world.

"One of my discoveries for the London Jazz Festival.. Heavy stuff" Gilles Peterson

"Dance to it, make love to it, stare at the clouds to it... Beautiful" Iggy Pop

"a deep ..almost spiritual grooves that stands completely apart” Clash Magazine


Throughout two hours (between 7.30PM and 9.30PM), you will enjoy a listening session of the latest LP of the London-based trio, guided by Bex’s words as she discloses the inspiration, themes and secrets of the album, culminating with a Q&A with the musician.
