Aza Photo Shoot
August 30, 2007
Posted by on
I was incredibly honored to do a photo shoot with Aza, a Moroccan band from Santa Cruz on Saturday, August 25th. These guys give mellow a whole new meaning. They played practically the entire time, which felt like more of a concert rather than a work engagement for me. Aza’s music is a blend of Moroccan, Indigenous, and even Western sounds. Serious talent here. Along with making incredible music, the band has been committed to reviving the Amazigh (Berber) culture, which is the ethnicity of Fattah and Mohamed, the band’s two vocalists and founders. Aza’s new album, Tamghra Wushen (Wedding of the Wolf) is due out this week and will soon be available for online purchase. Some of my images are inside the CD jacket. A CD release party will take place at Kuumbwa Jazz Center on September 28th. Call the Aza ticket line: (831)818-1842 for tickets and information. You must check these guys out, they are truly awesome.
Here are some of images of Aza:
A cool detail.
I went for a grainy look here, 1600 ISO and a Lensbaby…
A little humor at the end of the shoot, I never like to let things get too serious…
Thanks you guys, this was so much fun!
