    WorlaFest 2020
    This year marks the third edition of WORLAFEST; Festival Of Arts & Music, (WORLAFEST) an annual all day music and arts event held in Accra-Ghana. The name itself “Worla” means “the creator”. The festival is also an extension of the artistic face of Ghanaian musician Worlasi, who doubles as a painter & animator.
    Born and raised as Worlasi Langani in Agbozume in the Volta region of Ghana is a musician and a painter. His abilities cut across music and figure painting.  Worlasi’s interest in music started while listening to radio, and sampling the beats of songs he felt didn’t quite meet high standards. His inspiration to do music comes from personal experiences and what goes on around him, which he translates into instrumentals and then to words.
    He’ll be performing new songs from his upcoming album.
    The festival will kick off at 7pm to 10pm, scheduled on 7th November, 2020 at Alliance Francaise.
