We continue to bring a festive feel to the middle of the week with Wednesday night Live Music concerts. We invite everyone who is close to jazz melodies to the concert of our wonderful artists Jūlijas Zakirova and Klāvas Ābola on November 8, pl. 19:00.
Jūlija Zakirova is one of the most original Latvian jazz singers, who started her musical journey at the age of 16. Jūlija Zakirova studied vocal art both in Moscow, at the Academy of Contemporary Art, and at the Riga Dome Choir School (jazz department).
Then followed SONY JAZZ STAGE with Grand Prix, participation in various jazz festivals – Kaunas Jazz, Pori Jazz, Jazz Kaar, Saulkrasti Jazz and cooperation with such wonderful musicians as Madars Kalniņš, Māris Briežkalns (Jazz in Latvia 2008, The best of SONY Jazz stage) , Jānis Stībelis, Denis Paškevičs (participation in the recording of the “Dāvā sapni” CD), Intars Busulis, Raimonds Pauls (recording and presentation of the “My Favorite Melody” CD) and many others.
Then a period outside Latvia followed in the artist’s life. Wanting to expand her musical knowledge, the singer decided to continue her studies at New Park Music School, Dublin, where her path to composing began. Wanting to make music and perform concerts in her homeland, the singer moved back to Riga and graduated from the Jāzeps Vītolas Academy of Music of Latvia.
The piano accompaniment at the concert will be performed by the young talent Klāvs Ābols, who is a long-time member of the Rīgas Ritmi master classes of the jazz music festival, composes himself, and has also made recordings for Latvian radio.
A special selection of drinks and snacks for 1+1 for 6 euros has been prepared for this evening. From the range of drinks, we offer Lielvārde beer, prosecco, Whiskey sour cocktail, house wine and freshly squeezed juice.
For snacks, we offer bruschetta, nachos and a mini cheese plate.
But if you don’t want two of everything, you can combine a drink with an appetizer for 6 euros!
See you on Wednesday, November 8, at 19:00 at Lounge Fenikss bar, on the 2nd floor of ASTON Hotel Riga, Brivibas Street 48/50!
