United in the heart of Richmond, Virginia in 2015, Jouwala Collective blends Gnawa music, traditional African and spiritual songs characterized by trance inducing chants and rhythms, with modern influences of funk, jam, jazz, rock, soul, reggae, blues, chaabi and electronic. Erie synth notes create a soft background over which are laid tribal tones of instruments from a world away resulting in an atmosphere of spiritual healing. Incredibly fast, dynamic drum rhythms keep your feet moving while the overall sound holds you in a dreamlike trance. Electric guitars and rock themes interweave so that the mood, and the room, can be transformed immediately and without warning. Set to release their debut album in early 2016, Jouwala Collective is a unique musical force soon to be reckoned with.
ABOUT DOMINION RIVERROCK
What better way to celebrate the Richmond riverfront than at the nation’s largest outdoor sports and music festival?!

From music to mud pits, bikes to beer, SUPs to pups, and climbing to kayaks, it’s uniquely RVA! Rock the day and night away, watch professional athletes thrill the crowd, and maybe even get a little dirty yourself. This isn’t your typical festival, but we’re not your typical town!
