Nérija

As part of Black History Month in Leicester, DMU Music & Leicester Jazzhouse in conjunction with Serendipity present:
Nérija, a collective of all female London-based musicians playing exciting and original music inspired by Jazz, Hip Hop, Afrobeat and South African Township.  They have toured across Europe in such places as Norway and Germany, and have played alongside top UK jazz musicians such as Nathaniel Facey of Empirical and Zoe Rahman.
Meeting through a Tomorrow’s Warriors Development program, Nérija began from an initiative created to specifically address the imbalance in the number of women achieving success in the music industry.
Recent performances include UK festivals Love Supreme, Latitude, Brainchild, Manchester Jazz Festival and Jazz Re:Fest.
