Artis Orubs is one of the leading Latvian drummers, a musician of the Latvian Radio Big Band and several other musical ensembles, as well as a faculty member of the Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy of Music Jazz Department, who has studied not only in Riga but also in Utrecht and Amsterdam. Regarding his program “Artis Orubs – Drum Solo,” the musician reveals: “On stage, there is only one person and a classic drum set. There is no harmonic or electronic instrument for the musician to hide behind. I really enjoy this experiment with myself because it allows me to reveal my essence even more and understand how rhythmic sound interaction with the audience is formed. Each listener, regardless of their age or experience, is addressed directly and individually because music is magic that evokes emotions, stimulates reflection, awakens memories, or allows the body to heat up in dance. It is an exciting and surprising experience, a process that we can live together!”
