Gahu: Gahu combine elements of traditional West African rhythms and percussion, Jazz, Funk, African Highlife and Afrobeat in a unique sound we call Afro-Kiwi. In the meeting of diverse cultures, a new sound is born.
Based in Auckland, Gahu's energetic performance has entertained crowds at festivals and other events around New Zealand, as well as weekly gigs at The London Bar in Auckland. Gahu have recorded four albums of original and traditional music.
We feature their latest release "Shell Money" : Spanning a range of influences from Ghanaian village music to Highlife, Afrobeat, Funk and Hip Hop, Gahu introduce their new album Shell Money, promising to be even more danceable than the last.
