The name UMA comes from the South Estonian Seto dialect and means ‘own.' Both musicians - Alexei Saks + Robert Jürjendal are classically trained and mix purely produced sound with live electronics, creating a meditative float somewhere between new age, ambient, electronica and the subtle, cool tones of ECM-style jazz.
