The ensemble’s mix of classical chamber music, jazz, traditional music and opera blurs boundaries to merge into a single whole. Arcandela consists of Aiga Bokanova (voice), Kārlis Saržants (voice), Rihards Plešanovs (piano), Oskars Bokanovs (double bass), Rolands Zelčs or Māris Rozenfelds (accordion) and Liene Brence (violin). The ensemble’s repertoire includes original compositions, traditional music from a variety of cultures arranged by the ensemble and also contemporary Latvian music.
