Part of their UK tour, Valia Calda will be presenting their upcoming album entitled "Methexis" with F-IRE Label in April 2017.
Valia Calda is a London-based quintet performing music which draws influences from Jazz and Greek folk and tangles between electronic music and free improvisation. A diverse rhythmic language and a variety of sonic possibilities are brought into compositions, merged with each member’s unique approach and creativity, exploring collectively the group’s musical boundaries.
In spring of 2013 the band released independently their debut EP which received several reviews and radio plays in the U.K, America and Greece. Previous performances include London Jazz Festival, BBC Late Proms, Vortex Jazz Club, Cambridge Jazz Festival as well as concerts in the Netherlands and Greece.
