Los Angeles | July 24, 2019

We are proud to welcome the North Atlantic Jazz Alliance (NAJA) for another evening of cool jazz at Villa Aurora

NAJA is a jazz collective comprised of three Germans and four Americans. The musicians have been seamlessly fusing jazz adaptations of classical pieces with touches of avant-garde compositions and funk-infused, straight-ahead rhythms.

Pianist and founder of NAJA, Markus Burger, and saxophonist Jan von Klewitz as well as the entire ensemble played to sold-out houses at Villa Aurora before. Welcome back!


NAJA will depart on a 4-concert tour in July of 2019 with concerts scheduled in Southern California, Las Vegas and Alaska. The tour is part of the “Deutschlandjahr USA”, The Year of German-American Friendship, an initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut.

Under the banner "Wunderbar Together" the campaign will travel across the entire U.S., bringing with it a collection of events and exhibits revolving around business and industry, politics, education, culture, and science, to highlight the unique importance of transatlantic relations.
