The Afiara Quartet is a dynamic and award-winning ensemble, described as "a revelation" (La Presse). The multi-award winning ensemble has funded over 25 commissions of new music and spearheaded projects with jazz virtuoso Uri Caine, Latin Grammy Award-winning producer Javier Limon, and ground-breaking scratch DJ, Kid Koala. In 2015 they released Spin Cylce: an album featuring four new string quartets by young, Canadian composers with remixes by DJ Skratch Bastid. The album was named #2 on CBC Music's Top 10 Classical Albums of 2015 and #7 on Forbes' list of the same name. Afiara Quartet and Skratch were featured on CBC Radio Q with a live performance of Spin Cycle in May 2015.
