Kosovan singer-songwriter AJO brings her band to West London’s most spectacular setting for the opening night of London Jazz Festival.
AJO is a Kosovo-born, London-based singer-songwriter whose Albanian heritage inspires her unique sound. She draws inspiration from her roots in music and performance, elevating the craft and emotion of traditional folk music into jazz-infused territory.
After filling venues at Rich Mix and Royal Albert Hall in 2021, AJO returns to London to perform her highly-acclaimed EP Besa – her first work in 17 years. The album explores themes such as honour, betrayal, joy, pain, politics as a woman and the Albanian concept of ‘Besa’—an oath of trust passed down the centuries.
