Combining jazz and world music from different continents, Abraham's Café (EST) has earned its name among the audience by representing what the Nordic Orient could stand for. With that trust, they now are moving towards a more cinematic and personal approach in both composition and live performance.
Despite being relative newcomers to the scene since arriving in the Spring of 2010, Abraham's Café have already given over 100 concerts around Estonia and abroad. They have performed at the Jazzkaar, Visioon festival, Tallinn Music Week 2011, 2012, 2014, Viljandi Folk, Sõru Jazz, Saare Jazz and Popkatu in Finland, Positivus 2012 in Latvia and Euro-Arab Youth Music Expo 2012 in Cyprus. They also won 3rd place and 1st place at the 27th and 28th Uno Naissoo composition competition with accordionist Kaspar Uljas's tunes "Dim Dim" and "Los Pescadores".
Abraham's Café's debut album "Journey to Haran" was released in January 2013. The new album will be released in the beginning of 2015. The album consists mainly of music that was written for upcoming Estonian-Palestinian documentary "Grand Pas".
