The band draw on a diverse range of musical styles, rhythms and melodies from around the world. With backgrounds in classical, jazz, Cuban, Brazilian and Indian music, iyatraQuartet combine Indian raga with drum and bass rhythms, plain chant with extended percussion techniques and many more influences to create a unique sound.

You Are Wolf (aka Kerry Andrews)
Exploring English and American folk, fusing source material with leftfield pop and contemporary classical stylings, gentle touches of electronica and spoken word, all melded with an array of wild vocal techniques. Kerry has been played on BBC 6Music and she is a regular on Radio 3’s The Verb and recently performed her debut short story (birdlore-themed, of course) on BBC Radio 4.
