Moda Trio will be playing tracks from and discussing their new Demerara Records released album Bricks and Mortar on Nadia Ali‘s flagship Sunday evening show on the BBC Asian Network this weekend. Tracks from the London-based trio’s album continue to be played on radio stations across the globe as people latch onto their ethereal original new Jazz.

The programme makers were drawn to Moda Trio‘s unique Post-Jazz music initially because of Josh Mahmud‘s background as a British Bangladeshi but the whole trio will be involved in the broadcast and it will be a fantastic showcase for the impressive Bricks and Mortar. See the below link for details about the show. Once it has been broadcast we will also be able to publish the podcast.


Moda Trio will be performing live on the Nadia Ali show on BBC Asian Network on Sunday 28th August 2016. Nadia will also be interviewing Joshan Mahmud, the trio’s pianist about being a British Bangladeshi musician in 2016. More details to follow soon. 🙂


We are officially announcing today that, with so many albums stacking up for release between now and the end of 2016, Demerara Records unfortunately cannot accept any further submissions until 2017.

We have released two albums this month with Moda Trio‘s Bricks and Mortar and Nicolas Horvath‘s Acedia. Nicolas also has two more albums coming out (Cardew and Satie music) over the next two months plus we have albums planned by Backspace, Sue Rynhart, Chris Hutchings and Bar Markovich.

It will be a challenge to make sure all these albums are properly resourced, promoted and distributed as effectively as possible. It is an exciting challenge of course. But it does mean we have to draw the line at this point and say no to any more proposed releases until we are satisfied that we are ready to take on new projects.

In the meantime, we hope you will share in our excitement as the current and existing eight releases are joined by another six between now and December taking our release schedule to twelve in one year and fourteen in two.

Last but not least, thanks to everyone for your ongoing support. Thanks to you, the label is getting behind all these amazing projects. 🙂
