There's something sexy about not showing too much...
Koukie People
Koukie People is a union of pop singers from Latvia. The conductor and the vocal coach of the choir - Koukie, is a singer and songwriter. She released her debut album in 2014 in London, where she was studying and pursuing her solo career. When she moved back to Latvia in 2016, she met Edvards Kokars and they decided to form a pop choir. Most of the participants are Koukie’s students from Riga Cathedral Choir School, where she works as a vocal coach in the Musical Theatre department, as well as leads a student Gospel Choir. The idea to pursue with popular music sung in a gospel choir manner arose in both Koukie and Edvards’ minds separately, long before they had met. But when they shared this idea with each other, they immediately decided to act on it. Koukie People consists of singers that study Jazz and Musical Theatre, among other Popular Music genres, and enjoy performing both individually and as a group. Although this project is fairly new, its participants have already been awarded 2nd place in a National contest for ensembles ‘’Ventspils Groove 2017’’ and an  International contest for ensembles ''Moscow Spring A Cappella 2017''. So watch out for them!

Koukie People is an incubator where everyone gets to develop their vocal and performance skills through choir, while evolving in the commercial music industry as a  solo performer, backing vocalist, band member, music manager or any other industry field of their choice and interest. 

One of the first Koukie People sub-projects is Koukie Band -  a union of 6 members of Koukie People.. Their debut on a bigger stage was by qualifying as one of the 12 finalists on the legendary show X Factor in Latvia. They sing popular music in 6-part harmony with some choreography.  Their positive energy and uplifting vibe will make anyone want to move and sing along to their performances.  Good times guaranteed! :)
