"An unconventionally beautiful combination of guitar, trumpet and the rarely-heard corno da caccia." London Jazz Festival

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.

"Recording was like a cozy home concert, performed in peace and calm for your best friends, for people you appreciate and share with your life values." UMA is the common project of two Estonian musicians – guitarist Robert Jürjendal and trumpet/corno da caccia player Aleksei Saks – who came together at the beginning of 2007.
