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.
Following on from their acclaimed self-titled 2018 debut, Waaju's newest offering "Grown" has been hailed internationally as one of the finest assimilations of the new UK Jazz sound and presents the band at their most commanding and refined.
