StringQuake w the bush.jpg

With an emphasis on exciting and unexpected grooves, adventurous improvisations and rich soundscapes, StringQuake has captivated audiences far and wide.

StringQuake formed in 2012 with the mission to use their unique instrumentation (electric harp, cello, and percussion) to transcend audience expectations. They have produced an outpouring of original recordings that harken to the diverse collaborative cultural scene found in their native San Francisco Bay Area.

Each performance draws listeners in to hyper meticulous musical  arrangements while still giving each trio member soloistic freedom. Impossible to genre-fy, StringQuake’s stylistic influences include traditional classical chamber music, jazz, Latin, classical Indian, West African folk and Balkan music.

StringQuake has toured Mexico, Oregon and performs extensively in the Bay Area, releasing their first album "Take 15" in 2013 and "Cascade" in 2016.
