Voorand is a well-established vocalist whose original music and expression have brought her a number of prizes and performances in Estonia as well as abroad, and she has has toured in many countries during her career.
Award-winning Mihkel Mälgand is one of the most active bass players in Estonia. He has also collaborated with jazz stars like Kurt Elling, Nils Landgren and Dave Liebman. Mälgand also appears as an arranger and occasional co-writer on the Voorand’s latest album “In Duo with Mihkel Mälgand”.
Voorand’s and Mälgand’s strong sense of each other’s musical rhythm and improvisational moments result in a tight duo. The pop-like melodies are combined with virtuosic improvisations and skilled technique.
