The Magic of the Forest

Mari Kalkun comes alive in forests; she wants us to stop and listen to the trees. The folk singer and Estonian native has been inspired and revived by them from a young age.

Mari Kalkun comes alive in forests. The folk singer and Estonian native has been inspired and revived by them from a young age.

Estonians are connected to the forest in a way most other nations can barely imagine, she says, they are a part of both the birth and death of it's citizens.

Mari's ethereal music reflects this special bond and takes the listener to a calmer place and suggests that if we listen hard enough the forest might just speak.

Recorded in-front of a live audience at WOMAD world music festival.
