Estonian fiddler and singer Maarja Nuut enchants audiences with inventive arrangements of traditional songs from her homeland. Alone on stage, she blends her crystalline voice with violin and electronics, creating layers of haunting loops. “Her music takes us far away, in a country still wild and very close to nature,” said one critic. “When angels sing they probably sound like this,” said Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon. She creates a space where minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of pre-war Europe.

 In the spring of 2013, Maarja released her debut album, Soolo, which generated glowing reviews and comparisons to Czech avant-garde violinist Iva Bittová and the Twitter shout out from Le Bon. Her second album, Une meeles, was released internationally in June. Mojo magazine raved: “ … a striking solo violinist rooted in local folk but taking it closer to the psychedelic. A transfixing performance.”
