Otra is a project started by Parker Woods, that seeks to explore the relationships between gestural art and music. With focus on form, movement and expression, Otra’s sound moves effortlessly from delicate chamber music to intense avant-rock, and free improv. Since Otra’s formation in late 2017, the band has since become an exciting new part of the Vancouver Jazz and Creative music scenes, and featured in the 2018 Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Otra consists of vocalist, Natasha D’Agostino, trumpeter, Thad Bailey-Mai, drummer Miles Wong, bassist Stephen Edwards, and guitarist, Parker Woods.
