IN A NUTSHELL

Part of Serious Space 2017, Northern Estonian fiddler/singer Maarja Nuut combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics.

GO ON...

Hailing from Northern Estonia, fiddler/singer Maarja Nuut combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics to create an intricate layered soundscape in a space where minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of pre-war Europe. In her performance, Maarja searches for a lively and relaxed state like a cat poised to leap.

Released in Spring 2016, her second album Une Meeles explores the boundary between reality and dreams and was named one of the top 10 albums of 2016 by fRoots. The album was also picked by Songlines for their Top of the World accolade.
