It sounds like Cuban music, but wait, the lyrics are in English? Leading London’s Latin scene, Wara pays homage to Cuban music but allows for eclectic influences from multiple genres.

The band includes musicians with roots in Cuba, Venezuela, Chile, Spain, Italy, and the lead singer, Juanita Euka, is of Congolese and Argentine descent. You gotta love globalization!

With very current, politically charged lyrics, Wara aims to leave a conscious, rebellious message in the listeners’ heads while keeping their feet on the dance floor. And it succeeds at both.
