Jagaja is an indie pop rock band from Omaha, NE led by twin brothers Gabriel and Graham Burkum.


After playing in a band of 5 guys for so long, it’s refreshing and… liberating to be able to have so much flexibility as an ensemble on stage.  

One of the fun things about performing as JAGAJA is that we have the option to play around with the combinations of artists.  We were conscious of this concept as we wrote these songs so that they would translate as an acoustic duo, to a 4 piece band, all the way to a 30-piece outfit—  A guy can dream, right?  This is America.

If you keep up with us, you’ll inevitably see performances here and there with different backing musicians, and also a slightly different sound.  Gotta keep you on your toes!  It’s been fun to play our songs in all different forms, and we hope you’ll enjoy it, too.


We have unveiled a brand new JAGAJA tee shirt (just in time for summer!) and some really great new buttons!  Head on over to our online store and check them out!

JAGAJA is happy to announce the release of their debut record, the self-titled JAGAJA LP!

Mark your calendars for Friday June 24th, and make your way to Omaha for the debut performance and VINYL RELEASE PARTY of JAGAJA.  

Hello, world.

Welcome to our official website!

Graham and I will actively update this site with all sorts of content, frequently. Please take a few minutes to explore, and be sure to sign up for our mailing list.

Just a quick note-

JAGAJA has completely finished our debut LP with twelve brand new songs. We tracked the record in St. Paul with Levi Stugelmeyer at ‘Summer/Winter Studios’, then took it to the great Eddie Spear in Nashville to be mixed. Finally we sent it off to Austin, TX to be mastered by the one and only Chris Athens. We are looking forward to releasing it in 2016, and will keep you all updated on that progress.

In the meantime we are setting up live shows, finalizing album art, making music videos, designing merchandise, and preparing for the tornado that 2016 will surely be!

Peace and love to you all.
