Waaju believe in highlighting the world's connection through less familiar creative collaboration. Encapsulating influence from a number of cultures across Africa, South America & beyond, the band delves deeper to leave behind preconception & promote forces largely unexplored in a Western context. Citing the rich history of Malian music as centrepiece, Waaju presents the vision of drummer & percussionist Ben Brown which draws from the exceptional spirit of the likes of Ali Farka Toure, Oumou Sangare, Tinariwen & Baba Sissoko. / Facebook / Instagram / Bandcamp /

Drawing inspiration from Jazz & Blues, 18-year-old Sarah Meth has been quietly crafting classic sounds delivered alongside her unique vocal essence.
