A trio of creative musicians based in Cardiff, Tuk Tuk are a sax led group that perform tunes of memorable melodic lines and highly percussive group improvisation. With the absence of a chordal instrument they have flourished, creating a strong collective sound, rich in textures and subtle soundscapes.

 The writing has an undeniably contemporary feel yet with a firm foot in the past, citing a range of influences, from legends like John Coltrane and Joe Henderson, to modern the greats of Mark Guiliana, Avashai Cohen and Ben Wendel.
