Maarja Nuut & Ruum (Estonia)
Maarja Nuut is a fiddler and singer from Estonia. Her music 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.
A special collaboration with Estonian electronic music composer Hendrik Kaljujärv will see Maarja’s hypnotic acoustic loops met with more edgy electronic sounds. Hendrik Kaljujärv has been actively present in different art forms, creating sound and music for drama and installations. Together they push boundaries and expand soundscapes of Maarja’s latest album „Une meeles” that was released internationally spring 2016 and has reached great attention and appraise around the globe.
