The highlight of the Estonian Week is a concert of Captain Kirke and The Klingons, the new ensemble of Kirke Karja, that takes place at the jazz club Opus of the Budapest Music Center.
The new ensemble includes five musicians: the extremely original brass player Liudas Mockūnas, the Nordic saxophone king Mikko Innanen, one of the brightest musicians of the French jazz scene, the contrabass player Etienne Renard, the beloved and versatile drummer Hans Kurvits and one of the most innovative jazz musicians in Estonia, pianist Kirke Karja.
