Biļetes no: 20 €

In the heart of the summer, the Pūt, Vējiņi! concert garden will host an uplifting and vibrant jazz night featuring the talented singer Kristīne Prauliņa and The Soulful Crew, joined by members of the legendary band Remix Uldis Marhilevičs and Aivars Hermanis. Together with the Latvian Radio Big Band, they will perform fresh arrangements of the band’s instrumental hits.

In the first part of the concert, we will see Kristīne Prauliņa and The Soulful Crew, who will offer breezy romantic, soulful and passionate original music with lyrics in English and Latvian. The band’s sound varies from intimately delicate tunes to a grandiose celebration of soul music. They are inspired by blues, gospel, soul, funk, groove, and even rock-infused jazz. 

The Soulful Crew are an original music ensemble formed by its vocalist Kristīne Prauliņa, with keyboard player Toms Mikāls, bassist Valters Sprūdžs, guitarist Jānis Kalniņš, and drummer Kaspars Kurdeko. Their performances are full of skillful guitar, piano, bass and drum solos, enriched by Kristīne’s lyrics and the clarity, warmth, and power of her voice.

In the second part of the concert, the Latvian Radio Big Band will be joined by Aivars Hermanis and Uldis Marhilevičs to look back at the instrumental music of the band Remix and songs from the 1980s records Uz veselību! and Naktsmājas by U. Marhilevičs and A. Hermanis.

These songs were created when the Latvian Radio established an ensemble at the initiative of Maestro Raimonds Pauls, uniting the best young instrumentalists at the time – pianist Uldis Marhilevičs, guitarist Aivars Hermanis, drummer Vilnis Krieviņš, and bass player Jevgēņijs Ščapovs (Eduards Glotovs after 1989). The ensemble was joined by vocalist Igo, and Remix became the all-star band that we have known and loved for nearly 40 years. At the same time, the collective continued accompanying artists in various recordings and also working on their instrumental program. This work resulted in tracks like ‘Cīņa’, ‘Spēle’, ‘Pilsēta’, and the legendary ‘Uz veselību!’.

The compositions were arranged for this concert by the Big Band’s pianist Viktors Ritovs to enrich the sound of Remix with the band’s timbral shades.
