“GAHU - a Pacific/African pollination of grooves and melodies - with stunning interludes on the talking drum, brilliant guitar playing and just overall world class stuff. The band is so original and imaginative, and their arrangements so intelligent and interesting that they are a real pleasure to hear. Do catch them if you get a chance.”
Derek Jacombs

“Gahu stride between world music and jazz....with great energy, sociability and commitment, and their 'Hot Planet' album of last year still commands my CD player.

The new album ‘Shell Money’ doesn't mess much with the likeable formula which brings various African guitar styles (Hilife, Afrobeat ) to the fore...musically uplifting stuff ... I expect to be hauling this one out regularly come summer.”
Graham Reid NZ Herald November 2005

Live performances of this energetic band from Grey Lynn have the added attraction of the energetic dancing of Mr Y.B., man from Ghana, and the sight & sound of the unusual drums from Ghana with their irresistible call.

GAHU are:
Bud Hooper Ghana drums, drumkit
Lance McNicoll guitar
Cadzow Cossar guitar
Chris Neilson trumpet & saxophone
Jane McAllister electric bass
Ben McNicoll saxophones
Mr Y.B. Ghana drums, singing & dancing
