Olga Pīrāgs is a legendary Latvian jazz singer also well known in Europe and Russia. Strong and flexible voice, hot temper, bright rhythm feel, amazing improvisation skills and personal charisma make a personality that hasn’t changed for many years on the stage. Even though there is no festival in Latvia where she hasn’t performed, she doesn’t perform a lot, but she is well remembered and loved by the audience. And this is the most important for her — not the short term popularity, but long lasting trust of the listeners.
Getting ready for the concerts is very important to her – she chooses the songs carefully, making her favourite tunes the ones that form the program. She loves singing the tunes composed by Raimonds Pauls, who played an important part in her career.
