We’re very pleased to announce our 3rd album will be released in February 2020, again with the fantastic On The Corner Records.
Marking a transition to a slightly smaller band line-up, it is at heart a very personal album about coping with grief and the aftermath of loss, with the realisation that grief does not exist without love.
Previews and pre-orders are up on bandcamp – we hope the music connects with you.

Just before the release of ‘The Search’ Tamar talked to Bandcamp Weekly about the band, the new album & its artwork, and the life of a freelance musician…listen back here:

A great way to round off 2016!
Way back in January we went into the studio to record our second album ‘The Search’. Test presses finally landed a few weeks ago, and one of the tracks was featured on Gilles Peterson’s BBC 6Music show on 17th December:
News about the release date coming soon!
colectivo futuro talked to Collocutor’s Tamar about her musical life and the ideas behind the band. Read it here:
Some time ago, Emanative asked if we would collaborate on a track for an album to raise money for the Steve Reid Foundation, an organization set up in memory of legendary jazz drummer Steve Reid to offer help to people working in music when going through times of crisis and also to support emerging talent. Of course we said yes!
We chose to record a version of ‘Fire’ from Joe Henderson’s album ‘The Elements’, a particular favourite of both Emanative and Collocutor’s Tamar and a natural choice to fit the album’s expansive spiritual jazz thread (inspired by artists Steve Reid had worked with such as Sun Ra and Miles Davis). The session was hugely enjoyable, particularly as we were also joined by the talents of Finn Peters (flute) and Gemma Williams (harp) alongside the regular members of the Emanative musical family.
And now the album is available to pre-order on bandcamp! The 2xLP limited edition heavyweight vinyl is released on 16th March, so get in there quick. With numerous guest musicians from various backgrounds it’s great music, all for a good cause.
