'Sansusī' festival pits musicians against each other

A music festival with a difference starts on June 28 when accomplished musicians on various instruments will take each other on in a very civilized battle for melodic supremacy.

The cultural venue "Tu jau zini Kur" and the "Sansusī" association invite the public to a second season of musical face-offs. 

The first elimination round of the tournament will take place on June 28 at 19:00 in the "Tu jau zini Kur" cultural space, where concert kokle player Līga Griķe will meet pianist Aleksandras Kalėjus, while vibraphonist Āriks Miezis will compete against saxophonist Rūdolfs Pēteris Rubenis.

These musical battles will be decided every time by five votes - two performing arts professionals, one randomly selected guest of the evening, plus the total votes of the "Sansusī" and "Tu jau zini Kur" teams, as well as a final vote from the audience at the end of the evening, so the visitors of the tournament not only have a good time, but are also active decision makers. 

Their votes can decide which musician will go on to the next round and continue the fight for the main prize – 1,000 euros and guaranteed participation in the Sansusī festival in 2024. 

This will be the first of eight upcoming evenings of musical battles, each of which will be filled with musicians competing against each other. During this season, visitors will have the opportunity to hear the oboe, flute, piano, trumpet, bassoon, and many other musical instruments, including the human voice.

The next elimination rounds will be held on July 11 and July 27 in the cultural space "Tu jau zini Kur" on Tallinas street 10, Rīga, while the final will take place on August 11 in Aknīste, within the framework of the "Sansusī" music festival. The word "Sansusī" derives from the French "sans souci" or "without worries".
