Portico Quartet

Date: 30 Nov 2008 - 20:00
End Date: 30 Nov 2008 - 23:00
Event details: Nominated for this year's Nationwide Mercury Prize, Portico Quartet are four young musicians from South London who sound like nothing you've ever heard before. They describe their ethos as like an indie band that plays post-jazz, and their unique sound has won them fans from Gilles Peterson to Radio 4 and Notion to BBC Music Magazine, and made them Time Out's Jazz, Folk and World music album of the year.

Their dance friendly, melodic brand of hook-heavy post-jazz was honed busking across Europe and playing in unusual spaces; churches, galleries and chill-out zones. It's the mix of ethereal saxophone, flying saucer like Hang (imagine an otherworldly steel drum), clattering drums and earthy double-bass that gives their music it's inimitable, beautiful sound.
