Live Music with Ieva Sutina and Klāvs Ābols

Christmas weeks offer on Wednesday evening with us, in the Lounge Fenikss bar – a live music concert with an Christmas mood program. In the repertoire we will offer “White Christmas”, “Santa Clauss is coming to town” and other popular and well-known Christmas songs in jazz settings. The talented, young artists Ieva Sutina (voice), Klāvs Ābols (piano) and Reinis Ozoliņš (double bass) will conjure up this magical mood for us. We are waiting for all jazz music connoisseurs on Wednesday, December 20, pl. 19:00!

Ieva Sutina’s nature and singing can be compared to a spring morning wrapped in a light fog – herself  and her singing is calm, dressed in positivity and filled with burning goals. Ieva graduated from JIRMV as a pianist, participated in several competitions and won prizes. She is currently studying at the Jazz and Contemporary Rhythm Department of MIKC LMMV as a 3rd year vocalist. At the same time, he visits the folklore ensemble “Rāzna” and actively participates in various cultural projects.

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

Reinis Ozoliņš initially studied at the Emīls Dārziņš Music High School, learning to play the violin and double bass, but later he continued his studies at the Riga Cathedral Choir School in the Contemporary Rhythm Department, also learning to play the bass guitar. From 2010 to 2014, he studied at the Jāzeps Vītols Academy of Music of Latvia, paying special attention to playing jazz double bass. He has supplemented his knowledge in various master classes, master workshops, seminars. Reinis has been involved in various bands, as he practices in a wide range of styles and genres, playing jazz, blues, soul, rock, pop music and also academic music. For the longest time – for 5 years – he cooperated with the Latvian Blues Band, but currently Reinis plays music in Harijs Bašs trio, Kristaps Vanadziņs quartet, Ilona Kudina Quintet, in the project “Kristīne Prauliņa & Friends”, for which he also composes music. He has also written music for theater performances. He has also participated in various festivals, including Nomazz Meets the Baltics in Estonia, I.A.S.J. Jazz Meeting in Italy and Saulkrasti Jazz in Latvia.

In accordance with the Christmas season, we have also adjusted the offer of evening drinks – Christmas mulled wine (€6) and Hot apple/grape drink (€5), which will surround the rooms of Lounge Fenikss and guests with a magical smell of cinnamon and cardamom and will perfectly complement the charming festive mood.
