When: 26.03.2010
Time: 22:30

Instrumenti is a panda duo made in Europe that consists of an ever-changing cast of members originating from different parts of the world. Originally a two-piece combo from the Baltic States — Shipsi on keyboads/vocals and Reynsi on drums/guitars/vocals —, the outfit soon grew far more international, as visual artists and co-musicians from Sweden, Finland, France and Iceland joined the project. Lately Instrumenti have reaped fame in a bunch of Eastern European countries, France, Italy and Scandinavia with their single "Life Jacket under Your Seat". They’ve been called the biggest sensation in both the Norwegian as well as the Baltic music scene in 2009. Live performances by Instrumenti are always a spectacular adventure for the audience. In addition to brilliant artistic and vocal skills, pandas always surprise their listeners with extraordinary attitude and creative ways of acting on stage. Usually the set includes various elements of special effects — pandas reveal their alpinism skills (combined with pyrotechnics), engage in moon-walking, and bring crowd-surfing to a whole next level. Instrumenti have opened for James Blunt (2009) and Brainstorm (2009, Moscow and St. Petersburg).

Instrumenti on panda-duo Euroopast, mille maailma eri paikadest pärit liikmed tihti vahelduvad. Algselt vaid kahest balti muusikust — Shipsist (klahvpillid, laul) ning Reynsist (trummid, kitarr, laul) — koosnenud punt võttis rahvusvahelise mõõtme, kui projekti lisandusid VJ-d ja külalismuusikud Rootsist, Soomest, Prantsusmaalt ja Islandilt. Viimasel ajal on Instrumenti mitmes Ida-Euroopa riigis, Prantsusmaal, Itaalias ja Skandinaavias kogunud tuntust singliga "Life Jacket Under Your Seat". Pandasid ja nende lugu on nimetatud nii balti riikides kui Norras 2009. aasta muusikaliseks sentsatsiooniks. Ansambli esinemised on publiku jaoks alati üks suur vaatemäng ja seiklus — lisaks geniaalsele laulu- ja pillimänguoskusele üllatavad nad kuulajaid ebatavalise ja loomingulise käitumisega, demonstreerides näiteks oma mägironimisoskusi ja kombineerides neid pürotehnikaga. Instrumenti on soojendanud James Blunti (Riia, 2009) ning Brainstormi (Moskva ja Peterburi, 2009).
