What a fantastic year for AZOLIA! We received a grant from the Berlin Senate Administration for Culture and Europe for our Wilfred Owen Project! We wrote six new compositions with Wilfred Owen’s poetry. Here are some photos of our last performance on Nov. 11th at Forum Gestaltung in Magdeburg. On the Media page you can check out a video with some excerpts of the new arrangements!

Here is a little sample of our collection of photos taken in China during our last tour around the “Fête de la Musique”! Our tour brought us again to Kunming and Chengdu, where we reunited with our good friend Jens Kraus-Massé! And this time we also performed in Shanghai and Beijing!
Tomorrow night we’ll be at the B-Flat in Berlin. This week-end will be exciting as well: reconnecting with Nürnberg where we always enjoy performing! The DB Museum has invited us for its monthly concert series! Hope to see many of you there!
Tonight we’re playing at the Viersen Jazz Festival and are very much looking forward to it!
Our next show in Berlin is on June 20th in a really nice little place in Schöneberg! This will be our last show in Berlin before recording our new CD! The place is called Kunstforum Belziger 1 e.V.: http://www.kfb1ev.de/html/links.html. Come and join us and check out all the songs of our upcoming album!
We just came back from two tours, one in Germany, one in China where we were invited by the German General Consulates from Chengdu and Guangzhou. Both were exciting and wonderful experiences. Here are some impressions of our China tour:
