About Azul Duo

The UK's newest electric violin duo! Naomi & Athena have played with Ed Sheeran, at Wembley Arena & worldwide. Shows guaranteed to wow!
String duo
Public liability insurance of £10 million

AZUL was formed in Mexico, 2022, where, by coincidence (or fate!), Athena and Naomi met with their violins and, after busking the streets of Tulum together, had an instant musical connection. Now based in London, the pair have united their energy and unrivalled experience in the events industry to create a unique, high impact duo show. With world-class training from the Royal Academy of Music, Trinity Laban and Oxford University, the girls combine their impeccable technical training with a love for improvisation, and combine genres from Classical to Afrobeat, House & EDM. Having played with with stars such as Ed Sheeran and Indian Idol winner Salman Ali at no less than the BRIT awards, Wembley Arena, the House of Lords, the Royal Albert Hall and for clients such as ITV and Premier League Productions, Athena & Naomi are excellently placed to light up any event, whether weddings, corporate, destination or private parties. Naomi & Athena are also available for session work and tours and will be happy to discuss your project. Just pop us a message and we'd love to chat through your ideas!
