A concert where jazz, soul, and Christmas collide

A concert where jazz, soul, and Christmas collide

 

Over the course of three nights this week (December 14-16), Estonian female artist of the year Anett, will join forces with internationally acclaimed British-Nigerian singer-songwriter Ola Onabulé, and the New Wind Jazz Orchestra for a journey through popular and lesser-known Christmas songs. The concerts will take place in Tartu, Tallinn, and Pärnu.

In a harmonious fusion of jazz, soul, and holiday cheer, the New Wind Jazz Orchestra, recently crowned the Ensemble of the Year at the Estonian Jazz Awards, are set to perform alongside the dynamic vocals of Anett and Ola Onabulé. Anett, who won the Female and Pop Artist of the Year awards at the Estonian Music Awards, will be joined on stage by the internationally acclaimed British-Nigerian singer-songwriter Ola Onabulé.

Onabulé is perhaps best known for his collaborations with Grammy-winning ensembles like the German WDR and SWR Big Bands, the Finnish UMO Jazz Orchestra, and the Danish Radio Big Band.

This unique collaboration will deliver a concert that offers a unique blend of pop, jazz, and festive joy that will take listeners on a musical journey through well-known and lesser-known Christmas tunes.

 

The concert will take place on the following dates around Estonia:

December 14 Vanemuise Concert Hall, Tartu

December 15 Pärnu Concert Hall, Pärnu

December 16 Estonia Concert Hall, Tallinn

Tickets for all of the concerts are still available at Piletilevi
