Kadri Voorand

Kadri Voorand, awarded the President’s Young Cultural Figure Award in 2019, is Estonian vocalist, pianist and composer whose main concentration these days is on her duo with Mihkel Mälgand, Kadri Voorand Quartet and the vocal ensemble Estonian Voices. She creates music through strong emotional storytelling, combining catchy rhythms with a completely unique way of blending improvisational pop, jazz and folk elements. Though, her creative output keeps moving from one extreme to another. For example, she has recently soloed in front of the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra with Ülo Krigul’s premiere falling into the genre of contemporary classical music, composed music for the animated film Orpheus by Priit Tender, and collaborated with various artists, such as Anthony Branker, NOËP, Rein Rannap, Erki Pärnoja, and others

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
