Azhaar & Global Wave

Singer/violinist/composer Azhaar Saffar recently returned from Central America where she relocated after fronting acclaimed Brazilian jazz group Sirius B (Freestyle records) Her Iraqi/welsh origins influenced her nomadic, unorthodox, lifestyle that fuels her compositions. She wrote the tracks for her joyful new album ‘Original Love’ in Costa Rica – inspired by the jungle expeditions, the waves she surfed and the ‘Pura Vida’ she embraced. The river of music led her back to the UK to form her latest project ‘Global Wave’ – ‘jazz, fused with a vibrant, irreverent fusion of world rhythms and groovy beats; enhanced by Azhaar’s sonorous violin; a musical voyage crafted on the ‘songlines’. With the addition of renowned flautist Gareth Lockrane, Snowboy’s massive production and Azhaar’s string arrangements this little gem has made a big splash on the airwaves worldwide! Plus a big thumbs up from Dr Bob Jones; interviews with David Lyn ‘Music without labels’
