Maarja Nuut in Brussels

Maarja Nuut in Brussels

Estonian fiddler and singer Maarja Nuut will be performing at BOZAR. The concert is linked with the Estonian folk instrument exhibition which will open the same day at the Musical Instruments Museum.

Maarja Nuut is a fiddler and singer from Northern Estonia. Her music combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics. The unexpected combination creates an intricate layered soundscape in a space where minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of pre-war Europe. Often called a magical and fairy-like artist, she elegantly mixes the deep roots of Estonian folklore with contemporary electronics. Maarja’s debut album Soolo generated a small buzz in Europe, including glowing reviews and favourable comparisons to Czech avant-garde violinist Iva Bittová and a Twitter shout out from Simon Le Bon, the Duran Duran front man. Maarja has toured the U.S., Canada and Europe, won the Artist Award at Tallinn Music Week, and organised a very successful showcase at the WOMEX International Conference 2014 in Spain. Since then Maarja has been selected to play at various important showcase festivals such as Eurosonic Noordeslag, APAP, Mundial Montreal, Folk Alliance International, MENT Ljubljana, Lost in Music, etc. Her second album, Une meeles, was released internationally June 2016.

In 2018, Estonia celebrates its 100th birthday

Estonia wishes to share its birthday with you in Estonia and abroad. The programme includes best parts of Estonian culture, IT, science and enterprises.

Celebrations will kick off in April 2017 to mark a century since Estonia’s administrative borders took their current form, will continue throughout 2018 and 2019, and come to a grand close on the 2nd February 2020 when the 100th anniversary of the Tartu Peace Treaty will be honoured.

This is a celebration we can all take part in and it is up to us to make it memorable.

Estonia will be also holding the presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2017. Approximately 20 high-level meetings, visits, conferences and 200+ other presidency-related events will take place in Estonia during this period.
