Northern Connections, Small Auditorium, Tampere Hall

Mari Kalkun is a key revitalizer of the unique folk lyrics and culture of the densely forested Võrumaa region of south-east Estonia. Playing the 12- and 26-string versions of the kannel zither, she writes and and sings in the endangered language of Võro; her musicality is both intimate and intense.
