"Diaspora's performance at our wedding reception was fantastic. We got married in Christ Church, our old Oxford college, a beautiful setting which nevertheless has very strict requirements regarding sound, volume and logistics. Diaspora achieved what seemed impossible at first - to meet to all the college's requirements AND provide a magical performance for our guests. Many of our guests had 'Latin' origins - either from Spain or South America - and they were all equally impressed by the authenticity of Diáspora's music which kept us dancing till the early hours. Diáspora is a very energetic, friendly and professional band, who can produce the perfect music for any occasion. We recommend them strongly!"

“We were delighted with Diáspora. Everybody had a fantastic time dancing, and we received many comments about how excellent the band were. We would definitely recommend them.”

Several changes coming to Diáspora this summer.
Firstly, we are pleased to announce that the band is going under the management of DIASPORA COLLECTIVE, a brand new ‘umbrella’ company that will manage and promote the band DIÁSPORA and other projects.
Secondly, we will soon be offering a London band to reduce costs for bookings in southern areas of the UK.
Thirdly, due to the imminent demise of iWeb / MobileMe :-( our old website is due to expire and a new website for both DIÁSPORA (band) + DIASPORA COLLECTIVE (management) will be launched. However, this site will remain at the same address www.diasporamusic.co.uk There may be periods when the site is down for maintenance (around end of September / beginning of October). If you require any information/material during this time then please email us!
DIASPORA COLLECTIVE will be launched at its new home:
www.diasporacollective.co.uk in the early autumn.
Please note our new email address for bookings:
Brilliant gig last night... cheers to Alyss, James, George, Demetris, Dave and Frank for putting on a terrific performance as always!
I am pleased to announce that Rory is going under the management of DIASPORA COLLECTIVE, a company responsible for delivering the band DIÁSPORA (www.diasporamusic.co.uk).
Major changes are going to be happening with this website over the coming months. Since Apple have decided to destroy iWeb / MobileMe, I am going to be demoted to a less ‘pretty’ yet supposedly more streamlined and functional website. We’ll see...
The website address however won’t change.
