Three for the Weekend: Music, scenes of urban life

Take note – story published 6 years ago

Music from Poland and the Nordics, as well as urban art are in store for this weekend's things to do.

Mellow melodies from Poland

The exquisite Pils bar is on Saturday hosting a concert by the dreamy Polish duo called Coals.

They've been places, including a Positivus festival here in Latvia.

The Quietus, a British outlet, describes them thus: "The somewhat creamy quality of Coals' music is an experience akin to being wrapped up in cotton wool and sailing away on ebb tides of unperturbed bliss. It could well be down to the silky smooth voice of vocalist Katarzyna Kowalczyk or possibly the multi-instrumentation of Łukasz Rozmysłowski but the net result is gorgeously lush music that increases the anticipation of their yet-to-be released debut album."

Nordic ethno-jazz in Latgale

On Sunday the Nordic ethno-jazz band will perform the Lipet Ei / Seven Brothers concert program featuring musicians from the Faroe Islands, Estonia and Latvia.

The concert program reinterprets music by natives of Greenland, Northwestern Canada, as well as Sami and Yakut music. 

Khanti singers will be represented by formidable singer Vera Kondratyeva.

The concert will take place at 5 p.m. in Rēzekne's Gors concert hall.

Scenes of Urban Life

The Mūkusala Art Salon in Riga is holding Scenes of Urban Life, an exhibition of early 20th century Latvian modern art focusing on urban subjects.
