Creative jazz with an european sound

ALAWARI is a Copenhagen based musical project with a European sound that brings modernistic approaches and history together in one burning expression. Fragments from ancient wars and revolutions resonate in the music that brings both elements of classical music and jazz into a strong format that has never been more relevant. An orchestral, compositional and improvisational music that seeks to overwhelm and undress the listener’s reservations.

Through a strong instrumental and compositional surplus ALAWARI seeks to create one intense and present experience that tears the world apart, and invites the listener to rebuild and put it back together. In April 2022 ALAWARI released their debut album in collaboration with April Records, which was nominated for multiple awards and won the Danish Music Award Jazz for ‘Newcomer of the Year’ along with stunning reviews and international acclaim.
