On 4th of December at Arnold Kats State Concert Hall in the framework of the festival "Classics" there will be held a concert "Vivaldi Rock", where Latvian band DAGAMBA will perform original arrangements of both classical compositions and well-known musical themes from the saga "Star Wars" and popular series "Game of Thrones".

The band DAGAMBA attained worldwide fame thank to their creative approach to the classical repertoire. The bamd, founded in 2011, now cracks records of the level of views in social networks and perform with stunning success at the biggest world festival Glastonbury (UK).

The Group specializes in the performance of music in crossover and fusion style, using an unconventional set of tools - the sound of cello and piano interwoven with oriental percussion. Classical compositions by Bach, Prokofiev, Mozart sound absolutely unusual, acquire modern style by weaving popular rock and pop compositions.

In 2014 the band set a record in social media - their performance of "Ode to Joy" by Beethoven was shared by more than 10 million users of social networking site Facebook. This composition will finish the program of the band’s concert in Novosibirsk.

Bold and exciting arrangements of compositions, which creation was inspired by classical music grandees, joined different times and styles of music - Bach was sent to Iran, Prokofiev met with a knight from the movie Knight Rider, and Mozart shares his experience with Radiohead.
