Unending highs and lows, blue mood and sparking joy waved on Thursday night at the Opus Jazz Club at the Heliotroop’s concert. The jazz-folk team was virtuoso, and not only with their instruments, but also on the way how they communicated with their audience.

The Heliotroop’s concert was included in the Estonian Week’s program, Kadri Voorand – who earlier already had a concert in Hungary with her trio – greeted the audience with Hungarian words. Their first song was „Panic”, a very powerful chaotic piece which definietly drove everyone’s attention from their glasses to the stage. And then, the „show” began.

These six virtuosos on the stage – by name Kadri Voorand vocalist, Kirke Karja pianist, Meelis Vind clarinist, Madis Meister guitarist, Mingo Rajandi on contrabass and Eno Kollom drummist – had a perfect chemic between themselves, their instruments and also the audience. Sometimes, they played solos like rock stars at big stages, while at times they were gently caressing our ears, while Kadri’s performance was very suggestive and immersive with her assertive gestures with her arms.

Their songs were like soft skeins with countless oppurtinities, because at the beginning you could never know what would happen next. They used their instruments as knitting needles on the run: sometimes the contrabass, the guitar, the drum went on their own advanture, dictating different rhythms around different corners, while Kadri’s singing and the piano were coating the room with their musical threads creating an invigorating chaos and then, at the end the fibers perfectly melted together again.

They knew how to be powerful and how to be gentle at the same time, how to play the slience while being loud. Especially, we could experience it during Kirke Karja’s song, which – as she explained – was inspired by the ideal moment during a night spent on a ship on the sea, when she could feel peace, calmness and slilence.

Between the songs Mingo, Kirke or Kadri usually played the role of the presenter, they gave us comments about the lyrics or about the inspiration of the given song – and at times they did so using Hungarian words – wtih quite good and lovely prounanciation.

Heliotroop’s joyful concert was definetly burn to their audiencce head – it was a very lovely meeting with six musicians who are full of life and energy - and they did not hesitate to share it with us.
