"Gahu" literally means "airplane" in Ewe; and it is a metaphor. The metaphor likens the collective energy produced by the rhythmic interlocking of drum, song and dance and the manner in which it transports participants/audience to unbelievable emotional highs to an airplane taking off into the skies. Wait for it to pick up about 1:00 in. You may recognize the recurring scream of pure joy as the Gahu soars to new heights.. This is an incredibly fun piece to play (and dance). The lead drum is played by my teacher, Elike. Enjoy.
