Owl by The Owl Ensemble

Nour­ished by Indian and jazz tra­di­tions, but with an eleg­ance that comes from her clas­sic­al train­ing, Olivia Moore’s violin has an East­ern tang that is genu­inely entrancing.

…her obvi­ous joy in play­ing swells through her impas­sioned but restrained violin and offers her audi­ence both an emo­tion­al and a cereb­ral fulfilment.

This debut record­ing from Manchester based viol­ist Olivia Moore is bust­ling with ideas and influ­ences. A fusion album, in the tra­di­tion­al sense, Moore com­bines ele­ments of clas­sic­al Indian music, Brit­ish folk and even Nordic jazz, to pro­duce some­thing alto­geth­er fresh and cosmopolitan.
