Mila Dores (vocals), Yvonna Magda (violin), Derek Saw (tuba) & Charlie Collins (drums) This new quartet unites two of the rising generation of UK based improvisors from Leeds (Dores & Magda) with two “old hands” from Sheffield (Saw & Collins) in what promises to be a probing and far reaching affair that reflects their divers musical backgrounds. Portuguese vocalist Dores is a member of LIMA and is a graduate of Leeds College of Music’s Jazz course and now teaches and researches vocal techniques from around the world.
