Baiba Yurkevich

Yurkevich was born in 1990. By her own admission, her family was not connected to music in any significant way, and so she - beginning with childhood piano lessons - eventually trod a fairly lonely path all the way to jazz studies in a prestigious Riga college. Now those pursuits have taken on an even more academic aspect with her Dutch travels, leading to highbrow activity at The Hague's Institute of Sonology.

"I wasn’t born here, I’m from somewhere else,/ the sun burns a bit colder and the forests grow/ a bit greener there,/ I wish you could see, maybe one day."
