Wiyaala, which means “the doer” in her Sissala language, is a multi-award winning musician from Funsi in the Upper West Region of Ghana

Wiyaala, which means “the doer” in her Sissala language, is a multi-award winning musician from Funsi in the Upper West Region of Ghana performs at Prulček with prominent slovenian musicians. Her music references West African Folk traditions and contemporary Afro-Pop, sometimes drawing comparisons with Angelique Kidjo.

An irrepressible extrovert since childhood, Wiyaala is an African star who never fails to excite and inspire love wherever she performs. Wiyaala has received plaudits from WOMAD UK, The Commonwealth Games 2018, The African Union and numerous festivals throughout Europe after impressing broadcaster Rita Ray on the BBC World Service’s “Global Beats” programme in 2014.

Wiyaala designs and sews her unique stage costumes whilst promoting Funsi, where her mission is to attract foreign visitors to experience authentic African life and culture.

To further her aims, Wiyaala has built in her village an Arts Centre, Guest House and Restaurant where she holds festivals and events encouraging the local children to develop their own creativity and sense of self-worth.

Wiyaala, kar v pevkinem maternem jeziku sissala pomeni »tisti, ki naredi«, je večkrat nagrajena glasbenica iz Funsija, severozahodnega dela Gane nastopa na Prulčku z uglednimi slovenskimi glasbeniki. Njeno ustvarjanje se povezuje z zahodnoafriško tradicionalno glasbo in sodobno afropop glasbo.

Wiyaala je afriška zvezda, ki s svojo neustavljivo odprtostjo občinstvo vedno navduši in navda z ljubeznijo. Wiyaala je prejela priznanja WOMAD UK, The Commonwealth Games 2018, The African Union. Nastopila je na mnogih festivalih po Evropi.

Wiyaala sama ustvarja in šiva oblačila, ki jih nosi na nastopih. Njena želja je avtentično prikazati afriško življenje in kulturo.

Wiyaala je v svoji vasi zgradila umetniško središče, hišo za goste in restavracijo, kjer prireja festivale in dogodke, ki vaške otroke spodbujajo k ustvarjanju s ciljem, da bi okrepili samozavest.
