Information and Volunteer supporter ticket:
Inspired by the unusual spring this year, Mari Kalkun´s EP Apple Orchard Album will be released digitally on June 19th. Limited edition of CD is available only by ordering directly from email@example.com. Album sleeves are handmade and decorated with blossoms from Mari´s garden.
Mari Kalkun’s music is at once of a place and deeply personal. Rooted in ancient Estonian and Võru traditions, her music—for those of us with ears and hearts open—resonates deep within us to touch our spirits, our souls, even when the language is strange to us.
Acclaimed singer, composer and traditional musician has received widespread coverage and recognition by international media. Her album “Ilmamõtsan” was included in the Top 10 of best world albums of 2018 by The Guardian. She has recently featured on international radio and TV stations such as BBC3, BBC4, BBC Scotland, J-Wave Tokyo, Osaka Radio, Scotland TV, and BBC Alba etc. On 2019 Mari Kalkun received Annual Music Award of Cultural Endowment of Estonia. On 2018 she received Tallinn Music Week Artist Award. Combining folk traditions with innovative songwriting, Mari Kalkun is one of the most forward-looking folk artists today.
*Length of the video recording is around half an hour.
