Argo Vals is a composer and guitarist from Estonia. His live setup consists of electric guitars, a drum machine, looper and effect pedals. The emerging unique architecture of sounds resembles at times post-rock, nordic jazz, Steve Reich, math rock and idm. He has been recording music mainly by himself since 2006, composing for several diverse acts and groups, as well as for numerous TV shows, dance performances and even for the formal “handshaking” reception at Anniversary of Estonian Republic in 2012.

Argo's debut album "Tsihcier" was released in 2012 and second album "Nokturn" in 2015. Both records were nominated by Estonian Music Awards as the Best Alternative/Indie albums of the year. Estonian Music Awards 2016 nominated Argo Vals as the Male Artist of the year.
