“Kadri Voorand hits people’s body and soul”. - London Jazz News

With her latest album released on the legendary ACT label, Voorand is a charismatic singer, composer, pianist and improviser who creates music through strong emotional storytelling, combining catchy rhythms with a unique way of blending improvisational pop, jazz and folk elements. Mihkel Mälgand is one of the most active bass players in Estonia.

Kadri and Mihkel's strong feeling for each other's musical rhythm and improvisational moments make for a tight, award-winning duo whose pop-like melodies are combined with virtuoso improvisation and skilful technique. They perform heartbreaking power ballads alongside hip grooves, accompanied by a totally unique twist in sound and unexpected, daring lyrics. They have toured the world including festivals such as EFG London Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Pori Jazz, Jazz Baltica, Südtirol Jazz Festival, Beijing Nine Gates Jazz Festival, etc. Voorand is currently working on a new album which will be out soon.
