12.3.-20.3.2019

Starting from March 1st the Impérial Orphéon will spread its irresistible music trance in Latvia, Estonia and Finland. The French quartet celebrates its new album Seducere with an extended tour of three weeks in the frame of the Francophonie program.

The Impérial Orphéon sounds like no one else band on the jazz scene of today. After a few songs their concert turns into an invitation to dance which you cannot resist. The four virtuosos play with a high level of complicity. They stretch their musical scope from Brazilian grooves to Balkanic trance, from Heroic pop to valse musette and bluesy songs; and the Fantome of the Opera is always ready to pop up into this joyful and bubbling fellowship. After a successful visit in 2015 the Impérial Orphéon comes back to the Baltics in March 2019 with a new album Seducere. Their tour is part of the program of the Francophonie 2019.
