Wiyaala at The Blind Pig

Friday 5 November 2021

Wiyaala, which means “the doer” in her local Sissala dialect, is from Funsi in the Upper West Region of Ghana.

 

A three times winner at the All Africa Music Awards, Wiyaala’s music references West African Folk traditions with contemporary Afro-Pop, sometimes drawing comparisons with Angelique Kidjo and Grace Jones.

“Feisty is not the word – she is a powerhouse in the mode of a young Angelique Kidjo, effervescent and funny, she rocked the crowd and got a great reception. One to watch” – Nigel Wood at WOMAD UK
