Exhibition ‘ALIVE! A Story of Estonian Traditional Music Instruments’

Exhibition ‘ALIVE! A Story of Estonian Traditional Music Instruments’

The Musical Instruments Museum in Brussels welcomes an exhibition and cultural program about Estonian traditional music instruments by the Estonian Theatre and Music Museum and the Estonian Folk Music Centre.

The aim of the exhibition is to introduce Estonian folk music and folk music instruments. This exhibition is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Republic, and to the Estonian presidency of the Council of the European Union. This exhibition focuses on the most important traditional music instruments that were (and still are) used in our folk music. With every instrument on show we take a look at its origin, the purpose of use, its making, the local peculiarities of musical instruments, and their role in today’s society. In addition to musical instruments, texts, photos, original recordings, video examples, IT and hands-on solutions are used to reflect the variety of Estonian musical heritage. The texts will be in four languages – English, Estonian, Dutch and French. During the exhibiting period special concerts, workshops and educational programmes will be organised by the Estonian Traditional Music Center.
