KAWALA Great Britain
North London duo Jim (vocals) and Dan (acoustic guitar, vocals) quickly developed a distinctive sound. Deriving from their joint love of close vocal harmony, and rhythmic finger-style acoustic guitar, the pair started writing songs inspired by the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Half Moon Run. Now completing the line up of the band with Ben (drums), Reeve (bass) and Dan Lee (elec guitar), KAWALA have started making waves in the live scene. The sound has developed through the use of Afrobeat-esque drums, atmospheric electric hooks and strong rhythmic bass, yet still maintaining the focus on the twin vocal and acoustic core.
