We investigate when the group SLn (O(X)) of holomorphic maps from a Stein space X to SLn (C) has Kazhdans property (T) for n >= 3. This provides a new class of examples of non-locally compact groups having Kazhdans property (T). In particular we prove that the holomorphic loop group of SLn (C) has Kazhdans property (T) for n >= 3. Our result relies on the method of Shalom to prove Kazhdans property (T) and the solution to Gromovs Vaserstein problem by the authors.
