Matīss Čudars

Honorable Mention in the 2022 John Eaton Memorial Competition

MATīSS ČUDARS, born in 1991, is a Latvian jazz guitar player and composer. He's been acknowledged as one of the most pronominal up-raising young music talents from the Baltic States. His unique, highly personal sound, together with the artistically integral, energetically saturated, and lyrical compositions, gives an esthetic enjoyment to a music knower and a regular listener. His music encompasses various music genres - strong investment in jazz improvisation, folk music integrity, indie rock energy, and classical music harmony. Musicians characterize his music as emotionally touching, interactive, melodic contemporary jazz. Throughout his youth, Matīss had been busy studying and playing in various orchestras as a trombone and marimba/percussion player and playing the guitar in several rock bands in Latvia.
