Hailing from London's flourishing jazz scene, Cykada brings six friends and established musicians together under a mutual desire to discover new forms of musical expression. The collective includes bassist Jamie Benzies, keyboardist Tilé Gichigi-Lipere, drummer Tim Doyle, trumpeter Axel Kaner-Lidstrom, saxophonist James Mollison, and guitarist Javi Pérez. Influences past and present—from Pharaoh Sanders to Floating Points to Turkish, Flamenco and West African sounds—inform their dynamic debut collection, making for “a spellbinding musical trip,” says Twisted Soul. It's out on Astigmatic Record.
