Aniya is a group of 6 musicians with a common goal of turning people on to good jazz music. Their music is a collage of smooth jazz, traditional jazz, Neo-Soul, Latin, Gospel, and Hip Hop. Some people call this music Acid Jazz; however, Aniya would call it good music. Since their start, they have been fortunate to release 4 albums to critical and market acclaim: Spring Fling (2003), In The Moment (2005), One Love (2008), and Full Circle (2011). Each recording gives the listener an “ear’s eye” window into the ever expanding depths of the innovative smooth jazz sounds that come from Aniya. Aniya also has a live performance that is second to none when it comes to creating a pool of sound that enables the listener to rest, listen, and rejuvenate their minds with songs that magnify the simplicities of life’s joys in a way that only great jazz music can do. Aniya is currently in the studio working on their 5th album, Colors of the Sun. This album will further push the envelope of contemporary jazz and expose the listener to a full prism of colorful musical textures, layers, and flavors. It will truly be an earful. Whether on stage or in the studio, the music lover can be sure that their passion is music, their inspiration is life, their goal is perfection, and their name is Aniya. Rest for a while and listen to this music for your mind and soul!
