Ray's Jazz Presents: Waaju

Friday 31st March 2017 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Ray's Jazz Event, Music Event, Chargeable Event

Waaju is a London-based groove-centered world jazz ensemble that encapsulates influences from West African music, with a particular focus on the music of Mali.

The band plays the original music of drummer/percussionist Ben Brown, combining the exceptional spirit of the likes of Ali Farka Toure, Oumou Sangare, Tinariwen & Baba Sissoko with the spontaneity of jazz harmony & improvisation. The quintet brings the uniquely nuanced grooves of styles like Wassoulou & the ‘Desert Blues’ into a jazz context - resulting in an undeniably energetic performance!

 

Ben Brown - Drums
Sam Rapley – Tenor Saxophone
Tal Janes - Guitar
Joe Downard - Bass
Ernesto Marichales – Percussion
