LIVE VALIA CALDA (UK) ★ MAGIC CARPET SESSIONS

London-based experimental folk psych-jazz band Valia Calda return to Mezrab stage with their new album ‘Homeland’

Reflecting on the contemporary yet timeless struggles of physical and ideological displacement, Valia Calda’s music draws inspiration from the themes of migration and exile. Their music is rooted in the folk music of Epirus (Greece) and psychedelic jazz, which also tangles with punk inspired guitar riffs and modal improvisations.

The Greek brothers, Nikos & Thodoris Ziarkas, forming the backbone of the compositions are joined by the innovative and acclaimed musicians: James Allsopp on the saxophone (Dr. John, Nostalgia77, Polar Bear), Sam Warner on the trumpet (Ariwo, Riot Jazz), and drummer Gaspar Sena (Alfa Mist, Maria Chiara Argirò).

Valia Calda integrates a diverse spectrum of sounds, mixing in their long meditative improvisations, psychedelic aesthetics with elements from folk traditions and explosive drum beats. Always widening their perspectives and maintaining a creative approach, the band explores collectively how to expand the group’s musical boundaries.

Valia Calda are:
Jonathan Chung – tenor saxophone
Nikos Ziarkas – guitar/electronics
Thodoris Ziarkas – double bass
Nick Thessalonikefs – drums
