On 5 July night, "Rīgas Ritmi" nightly jazz cruise at "Missisipi" ship was opened. It went fantastic sailing under four Riga bridges due to great weather conditions and excellent performers. Therefore, we invite to experience the cruise on a night from 6 to 7 June, as well. Jazzmen trio from Slovakia (Andreas Varady/guitar, Adrian Varady/drums and Bandi/bass) played at the first event. First two performers are only 15 and 11 years old. You would not even notice considering their excellent technique and quality performance.
Even though Andreas Varady have joined many concerts before, he admitted playing on a ship for the first time in his life. Therefore, it was a great adventure for him. "Riga Jazz Quartet" (Viktors Ritovs/keyboard, Toms Rudzinskis/saxophone, Edvīns Ozols/bass, Artis Orubs/drums) played together with vocalists Elīna Viļuma and Daniel Cacija, one of the best Austrian jazz baritons, closed the cruise in a romantic mood.
