Young and talented poet-guitarist Raimond Virsa has gathered around him bunch of similarly minded friends. As Choco-Late Group they radiate positive vibes and love through their music.
The name Kartet marks a quartet with a twist. Their music reconciles intellect and intuition as it combines rigor with a sensitivity, an instrumental originality, and an attention to detail of total improvisation.
Founded by Tibor Füzy, the year-old band World&Jazz Quintet combines improvisational jazz with traditional music motifs from around the world: the Balkan, Eastern-Europe, Latin-America, Africa and the Oriental Countries.
Karpatt is influenced by George Brassens, they have toured for 4 years , played more than 600 concerts and took everywhere with them the special mood of Paris with a touch of gypsy music, swing and taste of good old wine.
Uno Naissoo is often titled as the founder or Estonian jazz with truly national features. In March, celebration of his 80th Anniversary will be held. The legend’s son Tõnu Naissoo plays the now-classical Naissoo-tunes with his son Marko – Uno’s grandson – on drummer’s seat in the band.
The Season ends with the performances of a very special band who’s last year’s concert here was a great success. And now they’re back. Since 1996, Quadro Nuevo has played more than 1500 concerts all over Europe. The venues quartet play at, are as diverse as their music: waltzes, musette, arabesque, flamenco, dusted off film music and Italy almost lost in time.
