Perla BatallaADAAWE

An acoustic vocal and drum powerhouse ensemble, or a full Afro-fusion dance band, ADAAWE has headlined performing arts venues, festivals, colleges and clubs across the U.S., and has opened for the late James Brown, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Los Lobos. ADAAWE's latest CD, "Passage," is an arresting collection of world-fusion, ranging from their trademark vocal percussion and djembe drum rhythms to Afro-funk, reggae and world pop. In 2018, they performed at Stevie Wonder's wedding, and were “Pick of the Fringe” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

You're going to love them!
Barb Junger, BBC Radio, Scotland
