“My music gives the audience a journey into my thoughts, beliefs, values and history.”
– Kadi Vija
Kadi Vija (b. 1985, EST/FIN) has a long background in vocal jazz improvisation and
defines herself primarily as a vocal instrumentalist. Vija’s music explores sounds from
modernism, jazz and electronics, as well as a deep fascination with rhythmic variety.
Vija channels stories from an unfamiliar language into melodies, sounds and ideas. In
her music she aims to find a balance between being out of her comfort zone and
feeling comfortable, and to do so with utmost sincerity.
Vija studied in several globally leading institutions, such as the Berklee College of
Music, the Sibelius Academy Jazz Department and the Conservatory van Amsterdam
