Keep Calm! Taruwa is 8!



Over the past 8 years, Taruwa has been home to a lot of Nigerian and International performing artistes.

TARUWA (a Hausa word meaning ‘gathering’), is an event created by Gbagyichild Entertainment. It is a gathering of artistic and intellectual minds, which creates a platform for artistes to express themselves in a comfortable and intellectual setting. On a typical TARUWA evening, we have poets, vocalists, instrumentalists, and spoken word artistes, performing. It is always a rich artistic cocktail.


TARUWA also affords up- coming artistes and members of the public who do not have the opportunity of art expressions at work, an opportunity to express themselves as the program is a forum for expression. It is an event where a banker for example can attend, take off his suit, pick up a guitar and relax.

Now in its eight year, Taruwa has evolved from being a bi-weekly gathering to a monthly performing arts event, to a magazine, to a yearly performing arts festival and to an online magazine and has staged over a hundred and twenty shows.
