Gig at the Greenhouses: iyatraQuartet

Loading Events

iyatraQuartet are very excited to be returning to play live at BPCG, local to where all the music is created and inspiration for music videos and some new songs.

The boundary bending quartet create original and virtuosic music; fusing their classical roots with innovation, intense energy and groove; exploring the capabilities of their instruments with a heady mix of world sounds and extended techniques.

Their distinct vocal harmonies emerge from a rich sound world of soaring strings, the exuberant lyricism of the bass clarinet and sensitive percussion. Delving into generations-old European traditions for inspiration, particularly the work of 12th century pioneering female composers, iyatraQuartet re-imagine early music and stories through their unique contemporary twist. Taking their name after the Hindi word for travel or pilgrimage, the band embraces this sense of journey through place and time in their music – there is a surprise around every corner.

“Absolutely beautiful” Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music

“Melding their classical roots with dynamic traditional and improvised music” Hannah Peel, BBC Radio 3

“The music is absolutely packed with a feeling of exploration” Sarah Ward, Jazz FM
