New York City-based Latvian singer, composer and arranger Arta Jēkabsone is recognized by her velvety tone. Arta engages listeners with emotional and honest, adventurous and joyful expression of music. Arta Jēkabsone Quartet will bring music from the Great American Song Book and from more contemporary jazz composers painted in their own way!
"Arta Jēkabsone is a voice that will soothe any pain or suffering. She is the guardian and embassador of light, love and peace. Yet, she still can bedazzle you with complex, but not overwhelming lines and melodies, and she freely takes command of harmony and rhythm." (Edgars Cīrulis -composer, piano)
