Azhaar was a sweetheart to deal with. She communicated brilliantly before the event finding out all the relevant details and showed up on time and well prepared. She played a difficult piece that was given to her on a very short notice. Will definitely deal with her in future events.
I am a singer / violinist and composer. I studied violin at the Royal Northern College of Music. I have since made a career specializing in jazz, classical , Brazilian and world music. I have recently returned from Latin America. I am involved in 3 main music groups: My jazz group, The Crazy Rhythm Club, we have a pool of musicians that can provide, Gypsy jazz and modern jazz.. The Primavera strings : a string quartet that can be reduced to a trio or duo...or expanded on, if needed. Latin jazz group Global Wave (a continuation of 'Sirius B', my previous band Brazilian group) Press Release: “Azhaar made her reputation fronting and co-writing for the popular Brazilian jazz group Sirius B. Their album on Freestyle Records was voted no 1, Jazz FM and in Japan- where their music was released on PVine... Her jazz quartet album Out was released on 33 Records and launched at Londons 606 Club She has performed all over Europe, including international festival as such as Montreux , Mai Jazz, Brecon and Glastonbury. After an absence travelling and touring South America, Azhaar returns with her new project Global Wave. She describes the music as new world jazz - original compositions inspired by her travels. The music follows on from Sirius B: Jazz that embraces Latin, Brazilian , African, Arabic and Funk Global Wave are about to start a crowd funding campaign to finish the recording of their forthcoming album ‘Original Love’ The present line up is: Azhaar vocals/violin; Jim Blomfield, keyboards; Guillaume Ottaviani bass; Ivan Moreno Percussion; Paolo Adamo drums..” REVIEWS: “Global Wave’s performance was exciting and wide ranging with the sounds of Latin America highly prominent in the mix. Saffar impressed as both a vocalist and instrumentalist and her original songs were also convincing. The presence of Blomfield in the band’s ranks proved to be a huge bonus, he made a perfect foil for the multi-talented Saffar. On this evidence the début album from Global Wave should be well worth looking out for" The Jazz Mann “One of the most distinctive acts on the jazz world scene” Andy Roberts BBC Radio Wales “Versatile jazz violinist and vocalist, Azhaar made her name fronting the excellent Brazilian Jazz group Sirius B. She returns from travelling and touring the Americas with her new project, Global Wave" Tony Benjamin
