Azhaar Saffar resurfaced from the jungles of Central America with her inspiring new project Global Wave, described as new world jazz. The debut album ''Original Love", composed during amazing journeys in the Americas, was released in 2018 with a fabulous production by Snowboy of the title track!
Global Wave have been wowing audiences with their sunshine grooves, rhythmic fusion, songs from the heart and Azhaar’s soaring jazz violin. And they will make their first appearance at London’s Jazz Festival this November!
