Since forming in 2002, Piva have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading early music ensembles and they specialise in the popular dance and ballad music of the late renaissance.
Playing an array of period instruments, their fresh, innovative and energetic approach has captured the imagination of audiences wherever they perform. They present lively and entertaining shows with a unique blend of music and anecdote. Multi-instrumentalists, with backgrounds in renaissance, classical and roots music, they combine their influences to create music of the past played for today.
