The Kaja Draksler Octet is a colorful group featuring very diverse musicians from different countries that chose Amsterdam as their home base. The music of the Slovenian pianist varies from simple songs to intricate compositions with refined textures, which are often inspired by modern classical music. Greek artist Andriana Minou wrote lyrics for this group.

Kaja Draksler received the 2018 Paul Acket Award, a yearly grant endowed by the North Sea Jazz Festival to a musician deserving wider recognition for his or her exceptional musical talent.

Personnell: Laura Polence and Björk Níelsdóttir : voice; Ada Rave and Ab Baars: reeds; George Dumitriu: violin, viola; Kaja Draksler: piano and composition; Lennart Heyndels: double bass; Onno Govaert: drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
