Courtney, Gedrych, Yardley & Wood first came together whilst students at Guildhall School of music. Since graduating they have all played in numerous bands and ensembles such as with Emma-Jean Thackray, Neue Grafik, SEED ensemble, London Jazz Orchestra, Jack Yardley Quintet & Matthew Read Trio to name but just a few. Now, they have come together again bringing their unique fusion of sweet jazz grooves, rock and chilled harmonies to the Jazz Sanctuary Stage.

Described by Triple J radio as ‘one of those beautiful blends of Latin, funk and soul’, Naia are a 4-piece band from London. While maintaining roots in jazz, Naia continue to breathe fresh air into the genre through their unique Latin-fusion sound. Naia’s music is shaped by their many influences, with members hailing from the Mediterranean, the Middle East and the UK. Naia have headlined some of London’s most esteemed jazz venues, such as Vortex Jazz Club, Paper Dress Vintage and Mau Mau Bar. Their live performances draw in crowds from the streets, captivate your soul and will have you dancing into the night.
