Wassalou – Afro Pop

  • Come hear us live everyday at Harambe Village in Animal Kingdom!!

This high-energy, interactive band emphasizes crowd participation and audience engagement at it’s best. It is often a hit with the tourists during their frequent performances at Harambe Village, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Their level of performance and musicianship remains unmatched in this country.

Wassalou is an Afropop band that presents a unique talent to the North American cultural landscape. It’s the only band of its kind in Florida, bringing language, colorful traditional costuming and dance straight out of Africa. Afropop is a term used to refer to contemporary African pop music. This term doesn’t necessarily apply to a specific style or sound, but rather is used as a general reference to popular music originating in Africa.

Their repertoire includes Hi-Life, Afro 6/8, Soukous and other famous African dance music similar to that which can be heard on Paul Simon’s Graceland album and recently, Yemi Alade. The four-member band captivates their audience with a refreshing taste of the music that triggers emotions and feelings of the “motherland” stimulating dance moves and happiness.
