Featuring some of Scotland’s finest young jazz musicians, Graham Costello’s STRATA bring the world of Reich-inspired minimalism together with the noisier direction of bands like Zu and The Thing to form a sound that ranges from delicate and meditative to more unhinged, and high energy. With emphasis on polyrhythm, cyclic form, improvisation, and collective groove,
STRATA puts musical interplay and chemistry above all else.
STRATA also run their own monthly residency at Glasgow’s renowned DIY venue Bar Bloc, where they continue to craft their sound and bring improvised music to newer audiences.
