Led by Italian pianist and composer Maria Chiara Argirò, the London based group brings together fresh young talent from the international music scene with an original repertoire of new compositions, characterised by their unique lyrical and rhythmic identity. Blending classical music and folk traditions with her own approach to harmony and melody, the compositions have been written in between her musical travels around Europe, Asia and America, calling strongly upon the sounds and aesthetics of contemporary jazz.
The debut album, “The Fall Dance”, will be released by Odradek Records in November 2016.
