Sound objects in this world song...not just pretty words! Afro Blue beautiful.

About the Album

“Afro Blue” EP blends electronic music, jazz, and African musical tradition, such as pygmy’s counterpoint and Baka water drumming. It interweaves sounds of different nature: synths, samples recorded at Lake Huron and live and emotional vocals. Jazz standards are used here as material, re-harmonised, and recontextualised by Anna and Daria into modern and refreshing music. This work is about the ability to hear it in noise and about the absence of a clear boundary between the sounds of nature and the music we create because ultimately we are sound objects in this world song.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
