Loka is an ever evolving, compelling and innovative band, drawing on influences from jazz to classical to BBC Radiophonic Workshop to 60’s psychedelia and so much more.

Loka released their first EP Beginningless in 2003 and their first album Fire Shepherds followed in 2006 both released through Ninja Tune. Their second album Passing Place, also on Ninja Tune, was released in 2011 and was complimented by the renowned Beaumaris Seindorf Brass Band.

The band has since recorded a radio session for Giles Peterson’s BBC Radio 1 show, as well as a tour of Canada – playing at the prestigious Guelph Jazz Festival – and Europe.

Loka’s third album Northern Oscillations will be released in early 2017 and features the singles Herculaneum Rock and Everything Exploded.
