Valentina Magaletti’s elastic drummer swag paired with Tom Relleen’s free-jazz and psych-based electronics form the powerhouse that is Tomaga. The duo make up for a fierce combo championing unrestricted sonic explorations, resulting in a sound that is as liberating as it is rugged. Both Magaletti and Relleen are also part of Raime and signed to the immaculate Blackest Ever Black records. Their practices are firmly rooted in the tradition of live improvisation, and their work has graced quality labels like Meakusma, Hands In The Dark and Kaya Kaya Records in the past. Their most recent album landed on Nicolas Jaar’s Other People imprint: Bandieri Di Carta is a collaboration between Tomaga and instrument builder and musical scientist Pierre Bastien.
