Olivia Moore is the band leader and inspiration behind Unfurl. She is an experienced performer, bringing her energy and sensitivity to the band, dedicated to Jazz and Indian classical violin though she also draws her influence from flamenco, gypsy and folk music. What makes Olivia stand out most from other improvising violinists is the strong Indian music influence within her playing. She has a longstanding connection with India with frequent visits of study there. In 2009 she was selected as one of eight musicians in the county to take part in the Serious Take Five artist development scheme and since them has become increasingly busy, having just recorded her second album ‘Owl’. She is influenced by her Indian teacher Kala Ramnath, the Indian Bansuri player Hariprasad Chaurasia, the band Shakti and also trumpeters Miles Davis and Dave Douglas and the jazz violinist Mark Feldman.
