Biography

Period: Medieval and Traditional

Early music's 'bit of rough' - this UK-based band sounds more like a street band than a solemn early music group. Joglaresa embodies the boldness and improvisatory chutzpah that gets straight to the heart of medieval music.

Comprising outstanding international performers from classical, world, folk and jazz, Joglaresa has a sound that is at once traditional and contemporary - combining intoxicating elements of Medieval, Middle Eastern, Flamenco and Celtic musics, they create a unique Londonsound that is both extrovert and intimate.

"Joglaresa's imaginative use of improvisation creates an exciting air of authenticity ... compulsive rhythmic energy ... luxuriantly ornamental solos": The Telegraph
