'jaye marsh' 'rikki lacoste' flute percussion 'aphrodite unbound'

Jaye Marsh and Friends

Jaye Marsh is the dynamic flutist and leader of Aphrodite Unbound, an eclectic ensemble performing classical works alongside their own music, planned and improvised soundscapes that marry ancient beats and modern classical sounds through a lens of looping and effects pedals with a dash of pop covers. Think Dead Can Dance meets James Galway with a side of Björk. Spanning all instrumental genres, they entrance and enthral with a mix of percussion, flute, electronics, theatrics, and an array of guest artists from piano, to harp, to bassoon. Classical music audiences will feel equally at home as fans of eclectic ethereal moods.

Marsh’s debut album ‘Flute in the Wild’ was the catalyst for this new adventure! The album has been featured on CBC, ICI Musique, and internationally on radio stations throughout the USA and the UK. Recently they were invited to perform in Chicago for the largest flute convention in the world in August 2022 and will be performing at a number of festivals in Canada and the UK in 2024. Marsh is the principal flutist of the Peterborough Symphony (Ontario) and an active orchestral freelancer and recitalist in Canada.
