Thurs 22nd March – Duski

Admission £10                    

Progressive 5 piece group DUSKI make their SoundCellar debut as part of a UK tour. Duski began life as a small three piece jazz group. Years went by and more musicians joined and slowly the jazz styles disappeared and heavy jams and collective improvising took its place. The piano morphed into different synthesisers and tape loops and the double bass cracked open to reveal its electric counter part. Standard chord progression melted away to reveal the dark minimalist progressive rock band.
