This summer Eva Väljaots and I won the main prize at Mooste Elohelü, a folk festival in Estonia.
In the competition, each act performed their own musical interpretation of a particular wedding song from the Eesti Rahvaluule Arhiiv (Estonian Folklore Archives). Along with this each act performed a second piece which was inspired by a traditional tune/song/misc. of their own choosing. Mine and Eva’s second piece was inspired by another recording from the Eesti Rahvaluule Arhiiv of Mari Sutt imitating the song of a lark.
Here’s an extract of the lark song:
I’ve added links to a couple of Estonian news articles too:
