On May 7 next year in Riga, in the concert hall Palladium will take place a rapper ancho solo concert.
ansis is a unique phenomenon not only in Latvian hip-hop, but, in many ways, in Latvian music in general. His music would rarely be classified as created for a wider audience, but despite this, ansis is currently one of the most listened Latvian-speaking musicians in recent years, competing with the biggest names in Latvian popular music. He has gained recognition from music critics (two-time winner of the “Golden Microphone”, nominee for the “Austrian Prize”) and has been able to maintain an increasingly important role in the Latvian rap scene as one of the most lyrically and technically strong rapper in the country.
ansis records his own recordings, often also replaying on self-made beats. Born and raised in Ķemeri, Jūrmala, the rapper has been active throughout Latvia in recent years, starting with small clubs and ending with major festivals and concert halls. After the duck concert, it is not uncommon to hear visitors talk about how it has changed their perception of the rap to the right.
“It will be a Christmas Eve. It is a huge privilege for me to do my music no more and no less exactly as I want and as I like, and it is time to celebrate this fact on a scale that has never been possible before. In addition, with the best audience that a rapper in Latvia can want. It will not just be another concert, you already know that, ”comments ansis.
For more than 15 years, ansis has been involved in such projects as PKI, the Left Bank Association, the supergroup Riekstu Armija, Dirty Deal Audio, the producers’ association Dirty Loops, etc., worked together Tools, Riga Fashion, Very Cool People and many more. In 2017 he went on a “Deep Tour” through small towns of Latvia (less than 10,000 inhabitants), in 2019 – on a “Republic Tour” to the concert halls of Latvia’s largest cities together with rappers Ozola, Edavārds and HIS.
For the attention of parents – the concert will hear non-normative vocabulary and content unsuitable for children.
