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!
