Wiyaala

26th May 2017 - 8:00 pm

Claudio Kron is a musician of international acclaim, with performances across many continents. His experiences not only inform and enrich his music, but also give rise to exciting collaborations with the brightest and best of the world stage.

Enter Wiyaala, the critically acclaimed Ghanaian Afropop star, whose music has a power that is simply breathtaking. Dubbed as “the young lioness of Africa”, this is a singer, dancer, poet, musician and songwriter, who’s pure and joyful talent has allowed her to take her childhood dream of sharing her music with the world; and steadfastly make that dream a reality.

Joined by the inimitable Kenneth James Higgins on electric bass, this promises to be an evening of exciting and uplifting world music.

“A powerhouse.” – WOMAD Festival
