Yaatri is a five-piece art-rock/jazz crossover group formed in Leeds in 2018. Their complex compositions and ethereal soundscapes have gained them a reputation for being among the most forward-thinking and unique creative forces in the North of England.
Influenced by the rhythms of India, immersive timbres of electronic music and energy of rock and roll, Yaatri have received praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and 6Music, Bandcamp Weekly, Soho Radio, and Jazz FM.
With over 50 shows under their belt, the ensemble have performed alongside some of the leading names in contemporary UK jazz, including Noya Rao, Richard Spaven, Jasmine Myra, Cykada and Myele Manzanza.
Their year so far has included a sold-out show in Liverpool, a packed house at the legendary Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho, and a standing ovation at their album launch at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds, dubbed by promoter DJ Lubi as one of the best received gigs he’d put on in years.
