BRIEFLY IN ENGLISH

Hers is a voice that seems to speak to us from the heart of the

Estonian forest. Mari Kalkun’s music is at once of a place and

deeply personal., For those of us with ears and hearts open her music,

rooted in ancient Estonian and Võru traditions, resonates deep within

us to touch our spirits, our souls – even when the language is

strange to us. Songs and musical arrangements that are sparse and

stripped down allow emotions to surface and the music to breathe and

reveal itself as if something organic and real. Her music is intimate

– it seems that it is born of the Baltic winter forests and icy

landscapes and yet it also encompasses renewal, hope and celebration.

Mari’s voice speaks directly to us all and reminds us just how vast

the soul of a singer can be and how small our world is.

Mari Kalkun has released five albums in Estonia, Europe and Japan.

Since the release of her first album Üü tulõk (The arrival of the

Night) in 2007 in Estonia, she has toured in many parts of Europe. All

her records have now also been released in Japan. In 2018, Mari Kalkun

was nominated in two categories at the Estonian Music Awards ceremony

and she received Tallinn Music Week artist award. Her latest album

Ilmamõtsan was chosen to the TOP 10 of best world music albums 2018

by The Guardian. Combining folk traditions with innovative

song-writing, Mari Kalkun is one of the most forward-looking folk

artists today.
