Dear friends and fans of extraordinary music,
with this compilation, I want to give you a glimpse of what is happening in Estonian folk music.
Some of the featured artists have been around for years with considerable success: Mari Kalkun, Trad.Attack!, Rüüt, and others are almost household names.
Others are brand new, but have plenty of experience playing in other groups.
It was my trip to Tallinn Music Week in 2017 that convinced me to attempt a compilation, similar to my previous efforts “Folk aus Norwegen” and “Folk from Finland”.
Not all artists and bands could be included, but I am very happy to present these 17 songs which I hope will stimulate your appetite for more…
