Cluj Napoca Rock n' Roll:

● Nadja is a duo of Aidan Baker (guitars /vocals/ piano/ woodwinds/ drums) and Leah Buckareff (bass/vocals). Nadja began in 2003 as a solo project for Baker to explore the heavier/noisier side of his experimental/ambient music performed mainly on the electric guitar. In 2005 Buckareff joined in order to make the project more than just a studio endeavour and to allow Nadja to perform live.

The band's name comes from Aidan's name spelled backwards in order to match the concept of a musical style different from his own work. The J replacing the I is, according to Aidan, a reference to the Nadja character from André Breton's book of the same name and Elina Löwensohn's character from the vampire movie.

● Aidan Baker is a Canadian musician and writer currently based in Berlin, Germany. Classically trained in flute, he is self-taught on guitar, drums, and various other instruments. 

As a solo artist, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar as a primary sound source, creating music that ranges from experimental to post-rock to contemporary classical. 

Baker has released numerous recordings on record labels around the world and has published several books of poetry. In addition to his solo work, he also performs in Nadja, BBS, Caudal, Adoran, Whisper Room, and ARC.

● Swarms And The Sun este un proiect muzical 'one-man band' din Cluj-Napoca, ce abordeaza un mix de genuri precum dream pop, alternative, post-rock. Longings, primul album lansat si inregistrat in dormitor, urmareste traseul unei pasari calatoare prin diferite peisaje emotionale.
