Niogi Niogi

Niogi is a contemporary jazz duo who performs original pieces using a combination of acoustic instruments and synthesizers. Soulful, beautiful, and passionate is how the music of Niogi is described.

The music that Niogi produces features a perfect balance of acoustic and electronic jazz. Guy Shkolnik and Omri Abramov of Niogi have been both composing music together since 2012. Both create pieces that are unique, and they always bring the right kind of energy to every stage they set foot in.

“I saw Niogi at the Ingolstadt Jazz Festival and loved their sound, compositions and overall performance. The audience asked for more and more. Highly recommended.” said Catherine Mayer of Just jazz International.

Niogi has played at Ingolstädter Jazztage in 2013 and 2015, making them the only Israeli band to participate in the festival twice.

“Niogi is definitely contemporary jazz, where acoustic and electronic instruments are combined in an interesting fusion of styles, from classical to jazz to world music. Very impressive use of synth programming and controllers.” according to the review in GuitarList.

In February 2015 Niogi recorded its debut album at Rainbow Studios, Oslo, with legendary sound engineer Jan Erik Kongshaug and Norwegian bassist Per Mathisen. The album was released October 15, 2015 under Alessa Records.

Niogi don't just perform soulful music for the people, they celebrate music with you.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
