Formed in 2014, Fabled is the brainchild of saxophonist/clarinettist, Sam Rapley. This is richly atmospheric and expressive music which draws from Rapley and his fellow musicians shared love of jazz ensembles, literature, classical musicians, world music, modern composition and indie-folk. Taking inspiration from the likes of Mammal Hands, Gogo Penguin, Polar Bear and Tigran Hamasyan whilst undertones of Debussy, Ravel, Peter Broderick and Lau can also be heard throughout.

At its heart is Rioghnach’ s deeply soulful, utterly engaging, stop-you-in-your-tracks voice alongside Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted, personal songs.
Teotima play a fruity concoction of West African, Brasillian and Cuban grooves, captivating jazz harmony, engaging interactive improvisation and songwriting with a deep narrative pull.
