Initially a paper fanzine created in 2018, Dukes of Scuba has grown into a web resource and concert series curated by Ash Cooke.

Its mission is to create a network for improvised music in Wales that will promote contemporary practice & unify existing grass roots groups, increase participation & widen the audience for practicioners working within the field of free improvisation. 

In 2019 Dukes published 'Experimental Wales - A field guide to off-grid Welsh music' covering the 7 main areas of the country and featuring over 100 artists, events and organisations.

A download of the guide is avalible HERE


Dukes of Scuba hopes to return as a paper publication again in 2021 curating essays/interviews with prominant Welsh improvisors and reviews of current releases.


We also hope that the ongoing concert series 'SCRATCH' will also make a welcome return too.
