Gahu is a rich texture of singing, dancing, drumming, drama and colorful costumes of the Ewe (eh-weh), who live in Ghana and Togo, West Africa. It originated in Nigeria and was brought to Ghana in the 1950's by Ewes who had travelled there, "Gahu" means "expensive dance" and refers to the elaborate nature of the costumes.

These are four songs that accompany the circle dancing and drumming of Gahu. The percussion parts include ostinati rhythms from a double bell and a gourd rattle. Overtop are interlocking drum patters which occasionally break into call and response rhythms.

Choral score for treble voices in three parts (SSA).
