We’re delighted to present our second release and first LP on Olindo Records by London based afro-latin jazz quintet Waaju. 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 this 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”. [info from label]
