Led by Aya Safiya and Tano Brock, The Aya & Tano Collective is a Boston based eclectic musical project that plays traditional Greek, Turkish, and Albanian music.

Both Aya and Tano grew up in the SF Bay Area where they were raised in a thriving community of Balkan, Greek, and Turkish musicians. In 2015, they embarked on a journey to Eastern and Southern Europe in search of music. With the songs they collected throughout their travels, they began to build a repertoire and perform regularly. Since moving to Boston, they have connected with Panagiotis Aivazidis, a qanun player from Serres, Greece, Cypriot bassist Manos Stratis, and Palestinian percussionist Alber Baseel. Together they play music from various regions of Greece with an electrifying chemistry.
