Food, Drinks and Live Music in Brick Lane
Brick Lane Jazz Festival makes its debut at the Truman Brewery in April 2022: Three days of jazz music set across five stages, with more than thirty performing artists, the festival will showcase the best of London’s vibrant jazz scene. On Saturday 23rd April, Waaju will be taking over Juju’s Bar & Stage for a unique live performance.
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 latest studio album “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.
“Sometimes the music on ‘Grown’ feels like a trick of the light; it grooves so hard but it still sounds delicate. Even in the heaviest moments, Waaju play with a wonderful lightness of touch” – Jazzwise Magazine
“(‘Grown’ is) a majestic spiritual jazz masterpiece” – Songlines Magazine
