Kick off your evening with Austrumkalns, the UK-born Latvian four-piece playing folk music.

Combining traditional Latvian hooks and melodies with their own twist, the two pairs of sisters, Karoline and Andra Zobens-East and Anna and Laila Grinberga, have their own particular style that must be heard live.

In the last couple of years, Austrumkalns have performed regularly at the London Latvian Bar, Balzambars, as well as around the UK, Dublin, Brussels, Germany and Latvia. Their debut song was regularly played on Latvian Radio 2, and also appeared on the compilation album Sviests 6. They were invited to play at two prestigious Latvian festivals, Sviests and Laba Daba as well as being nominated in the Radio Hits category for 'Bonuks' - a Latgalian language award. Last year, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Austrumkalns recorded their debut album Akcenti which is now ready for release.
