Wara come to Chapel Arts as part of their La Linea sponsored UK tour throughout May and June 2013 - as the freshest new band from the UK Latin scene the band have concocted an epic new musical genre of their own with strong Cuban roots. A hot melting pot of identities, living in London with backgrounds from all over the world: Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Ghana, Congo, Spain and the UK. With contagious, in-your-face vocals from Congolese-Argentinean lead Juanita Euka (niece of legendary Congolese musician Franco), inspired keyboard flourishes from MD Eliane Correa, MC Murmur quick on the rhymes and a super tight Latin/UK mix on the rhythm section, their musical energy is palpable. Combining a lyrically conscious approach with exceptional musicianship, this is a band with an urgent voice that demands to be heard.
