In the framework of the 3rd edition of the International Jazz Festival in Uzbekistan, a concert of the Latvian acoustic guitar trio AG 3'o and singer Aija Vītoliņa will be held on Tuesday, 4 April 18:30, at Turkiston Palace.

Well-known Latvian guitarists of several generations Mаrcis Auzins, Kaspars Zemitis, and Aivars Hermanis, inspired by the world-famous guitar virtuosos Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and Paco De Lucia, formed a trio in the summer of 2011 in order to participate in Sigulda Jazz Festival. The trio plays music of world famous composers as well as original compositions in their own arrangements. Although all of them are highly demanded as record and live artists, several times a year, AG 3’o gets together at live show to enjoy themselves and bring joy to the audiences.

Aija Vītoliņa – a singer with a velvety voice, feminine, charming, sometimes wild and playful as amber washed ashore by the sea… Aija started her career in 2001 as a background vocalist for various singers and musical associations. Her solo activities begun in 2003, with the project "Tango Sin Quinto". Together with the popular singer Intars Busulis, she performs in the energetic and colorful project "Viva La Bomba".

In 2008, Aija Vītoliņa participated in the final of the international contest "Five Stars" in Sochi, organized by the Russian TV channel 1 - "ORT". She got 2nd place as well as the Russian Channel 1 special award.

In her solo programs, Aija offers songs in different languages and styles – from popular tango pieces to little known, touching ladino style compositions. She performs songs by Astor Piazzolla, Raimonds Pauls, Maurice Ravel, Richard Galliano as well as the most beautiful melodies from the repertoire of Edith Piaf.
