GABO’s performances, mingling jazz, funk, soul and African music, embody the communal joy players and audiences alike find in music, whatever their backgrounds.

Intricate rhythms inspired by Ambatarian Philosophy – the encoding of stories and myths of the past and present into intricate xylophone patterns – power the collective’s performances, which combine music and storytelling into a powerful and resonant whole.

Individual stories meet group dynamics as musicians and audiences are linked through music that erases boundaries and forges connections. This special acoustic set is designed to respond to the unique venue of the Hidden Gardens.
