    “VIRA. Bold, impassioned, fervent. Upright. Yet soft, fragile, on fluffy dreams of home. And heartfelt, for good measure. VIRA is the aesthetics of mysticism.”

    Empowered by the hypnotic percussive rhythms, VIRA’s vocally refined poetry surfaces in clusters of
    urban energy, enriched with beautiful ancient laments. VIRA embarks on a journey through modern-day changes with the express aim of returning them to the past, to a moment that is both familiar and brand new. The music of this vocal-percussion collective is inspired by the age-long lore of our ancestors, the poetry, stories and melodies from bygone times. The traditions seemingly lost to this day, as well as the ones that have been kept alive.
    New international project, album launch.

    Due to the cancellation of his European tour Ben LaMar Gay will not perform at the 64th Ljubljana Jazz Festival.
