16.00 Open air stage of Harjumägi hill

PERFORMERS: Raivo Tafenau (saxophone) ja Ramuel Tafenau (drums)

PROGRAM: Jazz dialog of father and son. Contemporary jazz has no borders. Saxophone and drum duo is surely not a mainstream ensemble, because it excludes bass and harmony. Raivo and Ramuel are delegating the oldest argument - which was first: the chicken or the egg - into the music. So in this concert the question will be: was there first a melody or a rhythm. And is the blood thicker than water as well.

 

Free entry!

18.00 Town Hall Square

PERFORMER: Rita Ray: Rita Ray (vocal), Artis Boriss (keys), Kristen Kütner (guitar), Jasper Alamaa (bass) ja Ott Adamson (drums)

PROGRAM: Old Love Will Rust. Rita Ray’s self creational journey on the traces of soul and classical R&B.

Rita Ray is the first real Estonian following the blue eyed soul music. The lead singer and songwriter of a 5-piece band has polished her skills as a vocalist, pianist and composer by being involved with choir singing for 10 years and studying jazz. In 2019 she released her debut album "Old Love Will Rust". The 8-track journey on the traces of soul and classical R&B includes an upbeat treat influenced by genuine sparkling disco scenes from the 70s. After the album release work continued therefore our audience can hear new and yet unreleased material as well. Rita Ray enchantes the audience with her live performances where her soulful yet powerful voice and catchy melodies can really shine.

Free entry!
