Home concert takes place in Liiva, home of Kristiina & Uve

 

Once again homes will become part of the festival’s locational variety – for one special evening the musicians will become full members of the host-families and greet the music fans in unique atmosphere and intimate sound palette. All of the participating homes have been chosen with love and care and will be welcoming a very limited amount of audience.

 

The bright Danish artist Kira Skov and Estonian saxophone player residing in Copenhagen Maria Faust have brought together their fiery creative energy and together created the piece ‘In the Beginning’ for a choir and a band. Skov who joins on the album, got excited about Faust’s music when she heard her album ‘Sacrum Facere’. The understanding between the artists sparked collaboration – Maria wrote the music for wind instruments to Kira’s tracks, and soon enough the idea to create music together, came about. The women made melodies for the album together, the arrangement was done by Maria and words lyrics written by Kira. When making the album inspired by Estonian folklore, Faust went deep into the mystics of her home country and reached religious insights. The producer of the project is Mark Howard, who has worked with stars like Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, U2, and R.E.M.
