SOUND THAT BINDS. MUSIC THAT KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES.
Kārlis Auzāns, Miķelis Dobičins and Jānis Pauls formed Melo-M in 2005. Since then they have released five albums. Melo-M performances are distinguished by their ability to combine the classical music foundations, the energy and drive of pop and rock shows and an approach that is distinctly their own.
The source material Melo-M chooses to interpret tends to be quite varied – pop, rock, folk and world, classical and contemporary. They have collaborated with many world-famous artists, have played and gained recognition in many countries.
In 2010, competing against 73 other collectives, Melo-M were awarded bronze at Terem Crossover Competition.

Four strings, a wooden box that has lived for 300 years. The cello is the most human-like of all musical instruments in shape, size and sound. A daughter searches for her father's stolen instrument for a decade. An artisan looks for the best way to craft the perfect piece of wood. A soloist travels the world playing. A copyist recreates the sound of the great masters. The cello. More than just a musical instrument.
