Kadri Voorand
The music of Estonian singer and composer Kadri Voorand operates at the intersection of jazz, pop, and folk. In her home country, she is a national star and regularly performs in major concert halls. She was named the "Young Cultural Personality of the Year" by Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid, just one of the numerous awards she has received in her homeland, including the "Estonian Music Award." Furthermore, beyond the borders of Estonia, the young artist is gaining increasing attention in clubs and at festivals in the Baltic States, Scandinavia, Germany, and Southern and Eastern Europe. Kadri Voorand started her musical journey at an early age, playing the violin in her mother's folk ensemble. She began studying classical piano at the age of five and was already writing her own songs at six. As a teenager, she formed an a cappella band for which she also wrote and arranged music, marking her first foray into improvised music. She studied at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Her talent quickly gained recognition, leading to various projects with some of Europe's finest jazz musicians, including the EBU European Jazz Orchestra and the vocal ensemble "Estonian Voices." However, Kadri Voorand soon shifted her focus entirely to concerts and recordings of her own highly diverse and virtuosically performed songs. In 2019, she signed with the ACT Label, where her third album as a leader was released in the spring of 2020—a duo recording with bassist and guitarist Mihkel Mälgand.
