The Sanskrit term “bija” (seed) represents the source and at the same time the cause of all things.

It is the vibration, the primordial sound from which it all began. From this fascination, in 2011 Bija were born.
This atypical trio, composed, somewhat by chance, of an electric guitar, a trumpet and drums, made the decision to create music according to their personalities without musical prejudices.
The result is a dense writing, inspired by different musical perspectives such as rock, classical, world and jazz, which constitutes the trio’s musical backgrounds.

They took part in both festivals and contests such as Jimmy Wood Award 2012, the B-Live contest 2012 (Critics Award), the Soundslices contest 2012 (first place) and the JazzUp 2012 (Band revelation of the year 2012).

In Autumn 2014 it was published the Album “BIJA” (SLAM production).
In April 2017 they won the 1st price at “Multiculturita Black Music Contest”.
In November 2017 they won the “Audience Price” at Sibiu Jazz Festival(RO).
