Art rock/jazz crossover with the rhythms of India & energy of rock and roll. New pop tinged soul from the north.

Yaatri blend complex composition and ethereal soundscapes that captivate the heart & mind. Influenced by the momentum of the rhythms of India, immersive timbres of electronic music, and energy of rock and roll, their music has a strong sense of purpose and journey. Formed in 2018 and led by Indian/American guitarist and composer Liam Narain DeTar, Yaatri is Felix Bertulis-Webb on keys, Rosie Miles on vocals, Joe Wilkes on bass and Dom Kilsby on drums.

Yaatri have rapidly gained a reputation for being among the most forward-thinking and unique creative forces in the North of England. Combining the multicultural sounds of DeTar’s upbringing with psychedelic soundscapes, intricate arrangements and musicianship beyond their years, their music has been described by fans as emotionally transportive and capable of taking listeners to a higher spiritual place. Driven by lyrical melodies and propulsive grooves, Yaatri is compelled by the desire to push the boundaries of modern song writing.

“Soulful sophisticated pop with impressive instrumental interplay and delicately dextrous female vocals” – Trust The Doc

“Big fan of Yaatri’s debut EP, and [Gold]  is every bit as good.” – Twisted Soul

“…an absolute masterclass in multicultural modern jazz” – 45 x RPM

Their debut LP ‘Lucid’ is set to release in February 2022.
