On October 15, British indie-rock/pop singer Anna Calvi will perform a concert in Riga, promoting her first critically acclaimed album. The concert will be held at the "Palladium" concert hall in Riga.

The singer, song writer and guitarist is one of the most popular new artists to come out of the British music scene this year, with her unique and dark atmospheric romantic pop songs fascinating her many new fans.

Anna Calvi’s self-titled debut album is mystical, decadent, nostalgic and very innovative. The album has justified the support such musicians as Nick Cave and Brian Eno invested in Calvi’s musical career.

Anna Calvi’s performances are hypnotic, with her excellent guitar skills and unique voice, which does not seem to go with her fragile look. When she plays the guitar, she creates sounds that are more similar to other musical instruments – a piano or even a whole orchestra.

Calvi was also included on the "BBC Future Sound" list of up and coming artists to watch.

On the other hand, the "Palladium" concert hall itself will be unveiled on September 30 with a concert by British singer James Blunt.
