Brazil meets Africa in the United Kingdom



While the nominees of the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards are battling it out to take the spoils tomorrow night in Accra, reigning Songwriter and Best Female Vocal of the Year, super-talented Wiyaala, is set to make her debut in the United Kingdom at Brazil Meets Africa in Dewsbury tomorrow night.

Brazil Meets Africa is the brainchild of Claudio Kron, a celebrated Brazilian percussionist, and veteran of festivals worldwide known for his charismatic stage performances.

Sources report the two musicians are making magic in rehearsals with a powerful fusion combining Claudio’s Brazilian beats and rhythms with Wiyaala’s West African musical folk traditions.

John Sherren, Wiyaala’s manager said “We are not in the UK to take prisoners. I will get Wiyaala to perform at every opportunity available. I believe she will become one of the biggest artistes ever to emerge from Africa. Ghanaians should be proud of their girl.”

It all goes down on Saturday 7th May at The West Riding, Platform 3 in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. Entrance is free and the show begins at 8pm.

Wiyaala is currently on tour in Europe with performances scheduled in Germany, Denmark and the Womad International Arts Festival in the United Kingdom.
