Steeped in the tradition of John Coltrane, Deniss Pashkevich is a Latvian flautist & saxophonist, producer, ad-libber, and educator with a profound calling. Deniss’ own country has highly evaluated his investment in music in general, not only in Jazz, choosing him and his band Riga Groove Electro to represent Latvia in 11 Baltic Sea countries in the frame of the project Balticness (2007-2008), during which he performed in the best concert halls of those countries. The culmination of this project was its Gala Concert, where Deniss and participants from other countries performed in front of 11 prime ministers and President of Republic of Latvia Valdis Zatlers. The State has expressed its gratitude to Deniss, by issuing him a certificate of honor for “Strengthening the Republic of Latvia”.
