‘WAHH’ is a popular word in India that is similar to the word ‘Wow’. WAHH World Fusion Band is a spectacular blend of ‘East meets West’ in true Fusion Music style. Trailblazers of a unique and multiform sound, WAHH is rooted in India’s rich traditional musical culture and enveloped in an artful weave of Jazz, Rock and Funk. Tabla Maestro, Vocalist, Multi-Percussionist and Composer Shankh Lahiri formed ‘WAHH World Fusion Band’ out of his desire to combine his traditional musical origins from India with his current and contemporary musical explorations from the West. In addition, Shankh’s deep appreciation of other Cultural Music from around the world inspired his organization of the band.
