Ayo live at Jazz A Vienne

After selling a million and a half disks in 40 countries, Ayo teamed up once again in 2013 with Jay Newland, producer of her first opus.

The German singer with Nigerian and gypsy roots blends naturalness with elegance and at the Antique theater she unveils a repertoire that is more soul and jazzy than ever. Like the best of...

Greg Zlap - Air - Live at Jazz a Vienne

From the suburbs of south Chicago to stages all around the world, with their attention-grabbing collaborations with Mos...
