Cello trio Melo – M emerged in 2005 when academically trained musicians Karlis Auzans, Miķelis Dobičins and Janis Pauls decided to unite their musical talents and create a band. Melo – M play cello versions of variety of well-known music: from classical to ethno, pop and rock. Every band member has a significant academic music background – each of the three has played in international contests and performed with orchestras at notable symphonic music concerts. Uniqueness of Melo – M performances lies in their ability to combine foundations of the classical music with energy and drive of pop and rock shows.
