Estonian-Lithuanian band Heavy Beauty to perform at Vilnius City Fiesta


Estonian-Lithuanian band Heavy Beauty will be performing at Vilnius City Fiesta on September 2nd, 15:00 at Veiksmai stage near Vincas Kudirka Square.

Heavy rock sound and jazz improvisation meet in the music of Heavy Beauty. Rarely used bass saxophone is the centre of the group, its sound range can vary from sensible beauty to raw violence. Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockūnas and Estonian guitarist Jaak Sooäär are among the most internationally active jazz musicians of the Baltics. They met in late 90s in Copenhagen, where they studied together at the Rhythmic Conservatory. In Heavy Beauty they are joined by well-known Estonian rock musicians bassist Henno Kelp and drummer Tanel Ruben. The quartet released its debut album “Propaganda” (AVA Muusika) in 2016.
