Tori and Alcyona are both highly in demand musicians, working at the forefront of the London jazz scene.
Their duo came into existence whilst working on a project in the Canary islands, and in this setting they fuse their unique writing and playing styles, drawing on a wealth of influences including folk, Brazilian, Latin, gospel and free improvisation. Having both toured extensively with other artists, the duo gives them the freedom to explore their own sound in a more intimate setting. Their debut album is coming out on Whirlwind records and this concert is part of their Arts Council of England funded UK tour.
