Concert
Portico Quartet

Formed in 2005 by four friends who studied music together at the same school in London, the Portico Quartet continues its musical explorations beyond the established definitions of genre. Under the influences of electronica, jazz, ambient and classical in equal measure, the collective has changed skin and adopted new sonic identities at each stage of its career, releasing albums on established labels such as Real World, Ninja Tune, and Gondwana Records. Their debut album “Knee-Deep in the North Sea”

was Time Out’s “Jazz, Folk and World Music” album of the year 2007 and was nominated for the 2008 Mercury Prize. The Portico Quartet’s characteristic approach to the melodic percussive instrument known as the hang drum has become a key part of its sonic palette. Every composition by the group is innovative and compelling, each leading to a new adventure. The British group has reached perhaps the most productive period of its career with two albums in 2021 combining distinct musical aesthetics and a four-song EP in March 2022 titled “Next Stop.” You will be able to watch the Portico Quartet on stage at Babylon on October 6.
