Last Friday night, I captured Aza in action at their CD release party at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in downtown Santa Cruz. They played to a packed house for several hours and in true Aza fashion, nobody left unsatisfied! Thes guys always put on an amazing show. If you haven’t seen them live, I implore you to do so, you’ll be glad that you did. Their new CD, Tamghra Wushen is as emotional and mesmerizing as it is danceable and fun. One of my images from a recent performance is inside of the CD jacket. Go to azamusic.com to check out the band and to order this beauty. Oh, and I cannot post this without thanking Diane, Aza’s fabulous manager for all of her amazing support!
Here are some shots that I grabbed at the show:
Mohamed belting it out.
Patrick and Kevin feelin’ the groove.
Their sound is truly mesmerizing…
I can’t remember how many stringed instruments Fattah is proficient in, but it’s into double digits for sure.
It was a captive audience, to say the least.
Really wonderful show, you guys! Thanks for having me.
