A grooving force formed by a multicultural collective of versed musicians, The Mankala Band has one vision: to create Joyous Roots Dance Music! Since it’s origins, the band has transformed and expanded, evolved and adapted…yet has always maintained the original core energy and philosophy… Good vibes produce good music, good music produce good vibes!
