AKU are an explosive sax-bone-drums trio made up of three of the UK’s most monstrous musicians! Claiming the new genre of doom-jazz, they play a mix of their own material and covers of artists like Shabaka Hutchings, Fela Kuti and Young Fathers. Having played a lot with each other beforehand in different projects, AKU have been going for over two years. Their debut album will be released in March, 2019.
