"Peninsulas" is the first work by Oscar Antoli Quartet, as the name already suggests, transports us on a melodic journey through three peninsulas: Iberia, the Balkans and Anatolia. Inspired by the history and cultures of the Mediterranean, the original compositions are distinguished by eclecticism and connection and aim to rebuild a lost bridge between the music of its eastern and western coasts. Hailing from across Europe and from a wide range of musical backgrounds, the musicians of the Quartet create a diverse and unifying sound, aimed to conjure up images and recollections of people, lives and far away lands. Mild, yet jovial tunes, paced oddly but exquisitely by the balkan-jazz drum beat, with the flamenco guitar strumming its subtly romantic presence, the bass murmuring peacefully and the clarinet and kaval proudly heralding its presence throughout this

all-embracing journey.
