The ayawa is a large tree that gives seeds that are used to make necklaces. He gave his name to the hamlet of Ayawande (which is spelled Ayawaunti), located on Coswine creek, 45 minutes by canoe from Hattes beach in Awala in French Guyana. This small village already existed when the oldest of us were born. It is here, in the commune of Awala-Ya limapo, that the sanpula group AYAWANDE was born in July 2010. Ayawande was born from our passion for traditional Kali'na music. We are proud to offer you the music and make you dance to the sound of our sanpula.
