Formed in France, in 2007, Ô-liostére has built its musical identity based on
a progressive jazz approach, and through the various influences of the different
musicians who took part along the years.
In 2008, with a flute-drums-cello section, they reinterpreted some songs from
their major influences: Aka Moon, Magic Malik and Steve Coleman. Then, through
original metrics and claves, they have developed their own style between jazz,
alternative and contemporary music.
The band changed to form a quintet with bass, keyboard, guitar, flute and drums
by the end of 2008. In 2012, they were nominated by the French alternative radio
FIP for their composition "1 2 3 2". As of 2014, they have performed over 40
times in Paris and its neighborhood including its most famous jazz clubs. After
several live appearances as "guest star" and featuring in their first
album Circonflexe, a rhythm-noisemaker-vocalist joined the band in 2013.
Original composition, polyrhythmic music and improvisation are the features
that characterize them best.
