Latvian-Ukrainian trio to perform in debut concert

On May 26, 19:00, a new music association called Shakima Trio, composed of Ukrainian musician Shakima Garunts, Latvian guitarist Jānis Ruņģis and bass Ainārs Majors, will give its first concert. The concert will take place in the hall of the wooden building renovation center "Koka Rīga" (Krāsotāju Street 12), the musicians' representatives said.

The musicians were brought after the Ukrainian Shakiman Garunts fled Ukraine. “I do not want to ask for help and support. I'd like to do something together. I would like it to be a human value, which I can give to the audience as a musician. I want to work on a music project."

An hour-long concert program in which the Ukrainian cultural heritage is spoken through the music language has been created. Both meditative compositions and ballads, as well as folk music, will be heard. “The war in Ukraine will last long, but Ukraine also has history, culture, and soul. All of this is to be brought to light, thus compensating the overall heaviness. It is very important to build a spiritual area, light, cultural, and life-affirming,” said Ainārs Majors.
