“Kutse kiigele” in a direct translation means “Invitation to the swing”. In that context “swing” represents a melting pot for sonic traditions and diversities, but at the same time it highlights the beauty of roots and origins. The “invitation” encourages us to have a dialogue with new and unknown. It is a story about Estonian traditions searching for a balance to swing with sounds from Brazil, West-Africa, Scandinavia and more. Come and join us in this journey!
The concert is part of Kärt Tambet’s Global Music bachelor studies.
