ERKI PÄRNOJA : EFTERGLOW

Estonian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Erki Pärnoja will bring his band Erki Pärnoja : Efterglow to London Jazz. It is a nearly cinematographic sounding journey where synthesizer sounds meet melancholy guitar vibes – acoustic, synthetic and mystical.

HEAVY BEAUTY

Heavy rock sound and jazz improvisation meet in the music of Heavy Beauty, an Estonian-Lithuanian ensemble featuring the Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockūnas and the Estonian guitarist Jaak Sooäär, both known as some of the most touring Baltic jazz artists. In Heavy Beauty they are joined by well-known Estonian rock musicians bassist Henno Kelp and drummer Andrus Lillepea.

In 2015, they were first Estonians to perform at the world’s biggest jazz trade show Jazzahead! main programme.
