Line up

Ara’s Circle Funkyfies Afro Caribbean Beats And Jazz

Ara’s Circle builds bridges between cultures. The multi-international line-up based in the Netherlands creates music as colourful as the bird, a beautiful mix between Latin American music, Jazz and Funk. Ara’s Circle music is pure joy. This has been expressed in their first album: “That’s It” which was declared in 2014 “Album of the week” at Latin Jazz Network in Canada and won "The Akademia Music Award" in the United States of America in January 2016.
