RIP Tom Relleen <3
Tomaga is a live-duo formed by Valentina Magaletti and Tom Relleen. They channel various forms of multi-instrumentalism into music that moves by turns through industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism, on it’s way to somewhere wholly other. Devoted to musical exploration, this London based duo obsessively deconstruct familiar tropes, looking for the tension that lies between improvisation and form. Tomaga formed in 2014 and have already released an impressive discography.
Having been invited to tour with such musical luminaries as Stereolab, Wire, Deerhoof, Thurston Moore, FAUST, Lee Ranaldo and Silver Apples since their formation, Tomaga are truly one of the finest live acts around.
