Cropped Black Nile_edited-1.jpg



Black Nile are brothers Aaron & Lawrence Shaw which have been playing music together for much of their lives,  bringing forth a telepathic dynamic that translates heavily into their music and performance, embodying blends of the old and the new.  As believers in education and knowledge, they continue to finely tune their pallet and are in constant motion in their musical growth; while being among the newest jazz artists emerging from the exploding LA Jazz Renaissance.
