Lava Lela is a large ensemble of musicians interested in playing groovy music from around the world. The band came out of Nani Agbeli’s Highlife Music Ensemble at CalArts, and quickly expanded to playing many other styles, including afrobeat, dub, and punta, among other styles. Lava Lela creates a joyous atmosphere – we have as much fun playing the music as you do listening to it.
