Wara

 Wara 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.

 
"They mash Cuban jazz-funk, clubby beats and smart hooks – lead track 'Flesh And Bone' is a Latin-London blast." Single of the week - Metro
 
"Wara are at the cutting edge… of the musical pulse." Lopa Kothari, BBC Radio 3
 
“Wara are young musical revolutionaries who simply ignore convention…they represent the true sound of contemporary Latin London in the 21st century. Lubi Jovanovic (UK Latin DJ/Promoter/Journalist)
