Hailing from Northern Estonia, fiddler/singer Maarja Nuut combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics to create an intricate layered sound where minimalism and experimental music meet the musical village traditions of pre-war Europe.

Her second album Une Meeles explores the boundary between reality and dreams and was named one of the top 10 albums of 2016 by fRoots. The album was also picked by Songlines for their Top of the World accolade.

Striking solo violinist rooted in local folk but taking it closer to the psychedelic. A transfixing performance.MOJO
