Support comes from Graham Costello's STRATA
Featuring some of Scotland’s finest young jazz musicians, STRATA blend stylistic elements of jazz, minimalism, and celebrated progressive/noise bands together with a strong DIY ethic, winning over audiences with towering dynamics and a raw and genuine enthusiasm. The music explores polyrhythm, cyclic form, collective groove and, at it's true core, improvisation.
