Doors 7.00 pm. Music from 19.45 pm. Because of the nature of the performance space it is not possible to seat latecomers until the interval.

The Winemakers is a strikingly atmospheric 70 capacity candle-lit stone arch in the vaults of Holborn Viaduct, attached to the Winemakers Club, an independently run wine and craft beer bar.

New Roots presents an evening of new composition in what’s establishing itself as an exciting new movement in ensemble chamber music. Contemporary classical, western art music, jazz, world music and folk combine with a d.i.y. indie attitude. Musicians of the highest calibre are blurring boundaries and disciplines to create a new, highly accessible form, applying superb energy, verve and startling originality to create a whole new genre.

Iyatra Quartet draw on a diverse range of musical styles, rhythms and melodies from around the world to create their sound. With backgrounds in classical, jazz, Cuban, Brazilian and Indian music, they combine Indian raga with contemporary rhythms, plainchant with extended percussion techniques, and many more influences to create a unique collection of musical experiences.

This collaboration between Filipe Sousa (Portugal) and Jonathan Ang (Singapore), explores and pushes the boundaries of the piano/keyboard whilst seamlessly blending acoustic and electronic sound. Drawing influences from their myriad of travel destinations, Sousa & Ang play on the precepts of rhythm and harmony, blending musical characteristics from Southeast Asia to the Middle East, whimsically translating them onto the piano, melodica, rhodes and synthesizers.

Curzon and Ter-Berg grew organically out of Francesca Ter-Berg and Flora Curzon’s passion for Transylvanian music. Francesca Ter-Berg is a cellist specialising in klezmer and gypsy music. She has studied with internationally renowned musicians and teachers, most recently the legendary Manouche maestro Tcha Limberger. She performs with acclaimed folk singers Sam Lee and Katy Carr and has recently collaborated with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Mercury Award Winner Talvin Singh. Violinist Flora Curzon’s eclectic resumé includes collaborations with Sam Lee, Talvin Singh, gypsy-jazz band Dunajska Kapelye, the Brodsky Quartet and the London Chamber Collective, and orchestras, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Royal Academy of Music Sainsbury Soloists, Faust Ensemble, English Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. Her own projects, Gaia Duo and Curzon and Ter-Berg give her the freedom to combine her interests and explore her own ideas and creativity.
