Waaju Album Release Celebration (Now moved to Giant Steps)


Tis is now happening at Giant Steps at Swan Wharf in Hackney Wick.We're finally getting together to celebrate the 2nd release of London based quintet Waaju, released on their own Olindo Records label.A project that never stands still, Waaju’s members have been busy as part of other ensembles (Caravela, Bahla, Jordan Rakei, and Ashley Henry to name a few), which means they cherish each time they get to make music together. The five cuts on their debut LP are only a snapshot of what they’re doing and continually trying to do - the tip of the iceberg - but one that speaks volumes about their intentions.In Ben Brown’s words: “the amazing thing about music is that one can display the belief, compassion and love that takes a lifetime to acquire, in just a few seconds. As well as all these things, I hope this snapshot gives a glimpse into undiscovered places in the world and in ourselves”.credits.Support by colectivo futuro.Listen to the new album here: http://smarturl.it/waajuEarly birds £5Regular price £8OTD £10Waaju are:Ben Brown on drumsTal Janes on guitarJoe Downard on bassSam Rapley on saxErnesto Marichales on percussionTRC's sound system is kindly provided by the amazing EPA - EsotericProAudioWebsite: www.epasound.comInfo: [email protected]https://www.facebook.com/EpaSoundTwitter: @EPAsoundUKInstagram: ukepasound
