WAAJU picture
Rhythms pulse. Skins Resonate. Feet shuffle and heartbeats quicken. Waaju’s energy builds, weaving psychedelic soundscapes through potent beats, transcending the stage and melting into bodies. With a unique approach to a familiar sound, they rise from London’s rich cultural palette, proving UK Jazz doesn’t have to sound the way we expect it to.

Waaju's acclaimed self-titled 2018 debut has been championed by the likes of Jordan Rakei, Patrick Forge and Gilles Peterson' Worldwide FM. The record was named an ‘Essential Jazz Album of 2018’ numerous times, with global sales and radio play as far as Australia, USA and throughout Europe including regular plays on UK’s own Worldwide FM, NTS, Jazz FM and BBC Radios 3 & 6.

Waaju is:

Ben Brown - drums, percussion

Sam Rapley - tenor saxophone

Tal Janes - guitar

Joe Downard - bass

Ernesto Marichales - congas, percussion
