Reinis Young is a travelling guitar player from Riga, Latvia who has played all around Europe for years sharing his exceptional guitar skills and original songs... using different kinds of guitar playing techniques - including tapping, percussive, and finger-picking.
With his guitar performances, which are inspired by his travels, Reinis brings energetic performance to audiences. „Music is my passion and I always feel incredibly happy to perform for any audience, no matter if its one person in small cafe or full concert hall.” From highly rhythmic and percussive to soft and melodic Reinis constantly pushes the limits

The dark folk / alternative country / folk rock band "Jūk" is a musical collective comprised by mostly 5 musicians: Edgars Šubrovskis (guitar, bass guitar, vocals) Sniedze Prauliņa (flute, vocals) Oskars Jansons (guitar, banjo, vocals) Dina Skreitule (violin, vocals) Raitis Viļumovs (drums). They perform their own songs (by Prauliņa, Šubrovskis and Jansons) and original arrangements of popular as well as lesser known songs from the Latvian alternative underground and folk scene.
Patris' performances are improvisations that combine the sound of classical instrument - cello, field-recordings and digital sounds. Subtle melodies and sounds combine a multilayer soundscapes that might be compared to impressionism.
Music made by Patris Židelevičius has started mutating recently: the organic cello-based ambient he was creating for around 10 years is being sometimes being replaced with experimental electronic music. Analog and digital devices are used to create rhythms, abstract synth lines that bury music in pulsating chaos of warm noisy analog devices.
