ELLA ANDALL has worked consistently over the past three decades to establish herself as an artiste of international stature. Considered by many as a Caribbean Queen of Song – a chantuelle supreme, a high priestess of African-Caribbean music, Ella’s journey is one of power and potency.
From the early 1970s, Ella Andall emerged as a dynamic force among a new breed of peoples’ artistes in Trinidad and Tobago. With music as her main vehicle, she has dedicated her life to reach and teach the people, pushing a positive image reinforced with lyrical strength and fervour.
Within the last decade Ella has moved with a renewed determination to express the rootical sound of the Caribbean, rejoicing with the African spirit while retracing ancient steps with new energy.
Her most recent recordings explore the fundamental rhythms and chants of the Orisa religious traditions in the Caribbean. The drum and vocal tapestry of the high priestess Ella is woven with power and pride in albums like ‘Oriki Ogun’ and ‘Sango Baba Wa’.
