Valia Calda was founded in London by Thodoris and Nikos Ziarkas. A project that combines their mutual interest for composing music which draws influences from the Greek Folk tradition whilst involves through free improvisation.

A diverse rhythmic language and a vast variety of sonic possibilities are brought into compositions, merged with arrangements of folk tunes. The material is embraced by each member’s unique approach and creativity, exploring collectively the group’s musical boundaries.

Valia Calda was invited to perform at The Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms Late series in 2014, an event that was recorded and broadcasted by Radio 3. Other performances include EFG London Jazz Festival, Cambridge Jazz Festival, Vortex Jazz Club, Spice of Life, Ray’s Jazz, and The Forge amongst others. The band’s debut EP was released in November 2014 as an independent production followed by a tour in Greece.
