JAUNO JĀŅU ORĶESTRIS

(Latvia)

A six-peace folk/world music band that is well known in neighboring Latvia. Since 2012 Jauno Jāņu Orķestris fuses ancient lyrics of Latvian folk songs with the energetic music created by the band. Mix of modern and traditional instruments, electronic sounds and various vocal colors creates powerful live performance witch a touch of rock, punk and ethno music. The band’s songs tell stories of love and passion, joy and sorrow, life and death both in the old times and now. JJO is very happy to return to the MJR festival after ten years!
