With influences from jazz, hip-hop, Afrobeat and South African Township, all-female septet Nerija are blazing a trail for women in jazz.

Festival appearances so far include A Love Supreme, Latitude, Jazz Re:Fest and a sell-out headline show at EFG London Jazz Festival. Their debut EP was released in 2016 to critical acclaim.
