“Boundary bending” iyatraQuartet create original, virtuosic music for violin, cello, bass clarinet and percussion, plus voices. Drawing on backgrounds encompassing classical to contemporary and Indian to folk musics, iyatraQuartet have forged a unique sound that is entirely collaborative.
‘iyatra’ derives from the Hindi word for travel or pilgrimage and the group embraces this sense of journey in every performance.
iyatraQuartet have captivated audiences at WOMAD and Songlines Encounters Festival, and in March 2019 were presented with the Kennedy-Kolodziejski Award by violinist Nigel Kennedy at Ronnie Scott’s.
