It boggles the mind to think that Yaatri could be born from a city best known for its ridiculous one-way system. But while Leeds may be the stomping ground for this ambitious conglomerate, its inspirations come from much farther afield. Jazz in its original form was all about diaspora taking music from ancestral continents and making it their own – Yaatri continues this tradition by seamlessly blending modern composition with traditional instruments to create a sound that is out of time and forward-looking.

Debut album Lucid is the best of this melting pot, weaving an intricate global story through paradisical soundscapes. Yaatri presents an exciting direction for the future of music: one that respects and moreover champions cultural experience as a source of sonic innovation.
