Mari Kalkun

Estonian folk singer Mari Kalkun presents a performance of unique compositions inspired by nature, Estonian poetry and folk music. She will perform an array of songs with lyrics written by Estonian poets intertwined with traditional singing (regilaul) and folklore, using the kannel, piano, accordion, guitar, and other instruments.

"Gentle, dignified and utterly beautiful. As a singer, writer and instrumentalist, Kalkun is a musician whose work is a jewel in the crown of the rich Estonian scene."—Songlines

“Kalkun’s singing is at the heart of things; joyous and lamenting by turns, but always poised and melodious, her poeticism apparent even without translation. A magical creation.”—The Guardian.
