"Obvious Talent Closed The IMAGES Festival"

As daylight disappeared behind Nørrebro, the moon came with Alo Wala and ushered in the electronic sound.

The young singer has moved from India to Chicago and on the road made ??her debut with the Danish producers Copia Doble Systema.

On Saturday night, she got the backing of the cumbia-inspired duo Copia Doble Systema with the Danish Globalist DJ Copyflex and Julius Sylvest. They delivered a high level of both rocking and eruptive beats that Alo Wala put her intense rap over .

The musical intensity was top notch, an Alo Wala seemed sometimes happy. Both in her flirtation with the audience and the singer that would set the decisive battle into the microphone.

Her talent was obvious (...). She created (new) connections for the festival. - Politiken (printed newspaper, Denmark)


Still working on that hot first release.



ALO WALA, meaning people of the light in a mix of Bengali/Hindi, is a band comprised of Brooklyn based recording artist Shivani Ahlowalia and tropical bass pioneers Copia Doble Systema. Their sound is rooted in hip hop and branches into dancehall as Shivanis voice flows playfully over embellished basslines promising a truly uplifting  dancefloor experience.

Shivani Ahlowalia is a first generation American from a Punjabi-Indian family. She takes her musical inspiration from her mixed cultural background and her many travels around the globe. Her live show, crafted with Copia Doble Systema, features hefty percussion from Julius Sylvest, once the youngest drummer of the Danish Royal Marching Band; VJ Mad Es overwhelming live visuals; and as musical captain of the boat, Norwegian Copyflex live on samplers, air horn and synthesizer. Together they create a magical rave, presenting ALO WALA in lavish geometric shapes and bright colours, flirting in front of euphoric visuals and bouncing over colossal bass lines that make your whole body vibrate.

In September 2013 they toured together for the first time, doing six shows in Denmark and Spain, including the festivals Images and RAW in Copenhagen and BAM Festival in Barcelona. In January they spent nearly two months on the road in India, cutting their teeth playing packed club shows, desert festivals and private events.

Furthermore, ALO WALA have recorded a full length album in their own defunct backyard brothel transformed into a studio house and in the luxurious Red Bull Studios Copenhagen, collaborating with Schlachthofbronx (DE), Nucleya (IN), Boody (US) and Eloq (DK) and featuring their friends Jahdan Blakkamoore, Mudimbi and MC Zulu on guest vocals.

Do not let ALO WALAs Bollywood twirls and meditative lyrics trump their chief intention: To make you dance hard!
