A live concert with Upa-upa trio last week was broadcasted by Estonian Television and European Radios (EBU Folkfest). The concert at Viljandi Folk Music Festival turned out to be an amazing evening with unforgettably warm reception by the crowd, we are so thankful!!! If you want to be part of it, you can check the broadcast from Estonian Television following THIS LINK (our concert starts on 9:40 after Estonian President’s speech). I post a selection of nice moments on and off the stage captured by Kristiin Elmat, Marie Virta, Kris Süld. Thanks to all who made it happen!
Upa-upa trio mängis eelmisel nädalal Viljandi Folgil kontserdi, mida salvestasid ja kandsid üle nii ETV kui ka Euroopa raadiod (EBU). Teleka, mobiili ja taevakanalite vahendusel saab sellest lingiga SIIN tagantjärgi osa (meie kontserdi algus 9:40 minutil). Oli uskumatu õhtu ja südantsoojendav vastuvõtt, me täname palavalt!!!

The show will be broadcasted by Estonian Television ETV and Estonian Classic Radio (Klassikaraadio) and it t will soon be available in various European radios.

Mari Kalkun & Runorun has just received new print of “Tii ilo” which is being released in Germany! As a result of collaborations between our home label Rockadillo Records and German label Nordic Notes the record will be very soon be available also in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and UK. Nordic Notes is a German record company focused on new exciting music from Scandinavia. The album released will be followed by Mari Kalkun & Runorun tour in Germany in spring 2017. Looking forward!
Äsja saabus plaadipresside vahelt bändi MARI KALKUN & RUNORUN albumi «Tii ilo» teine trükk, mis on juba varem näinud valgust nii Eesti, Soome kui Jaapani plaadipoodide riiulitelt. Käesolevaga aga tähistavad muusikud ning neid esindav Soome plaadifirma Rockadillo Records seda, et nende võro-, vadja- ja liivikeelne muusika on jõudnud ka Saksamaale.
Plaadi uus trükk ilmub kahasse maineka Rockadillo Records’i ja Nordic Notes’i vahel ning «Tii ilo» müügipiirkonda lisanduvad uue väljaandmisega Saksamaa, Austria, Šveits ning Suurbritannia. Nordic Notes annab välja Põhjamaade põnevat uut muusikat. 2017. aasta kevadel ootab Mari Kalkun & Runoruni ees Saksamaa kontserttuur.
What a great and unexpected surprise! Mari Kalkun & Runorun album “Tii ilo” has got a double nomination at music awards – it’s been nominated for Ethno Album of the Year both in Estonia and Finland. This makes Kalkun the first Estonian to be nominated to a Finnish music award. Mari lives in the Southern edge of Estonia as other Finnish/Australian band members, record label Rockadillo records and album artist Tatjana Bergelt are located in Finland.
And what a nice company to share with as other candidates for the prize are Kimmo Pohjonen, Pekko Käppi, Anne-Mari Kivimäki and Sväng in Finland and Trad. Attack!, Curly Strings in Estonia. The award winners are announed at galas taking place on 28th of January (Estonian Music Awards gala at Nordea concert hall, Tallinn) and 11th March 2016 (Finnish Music Awards at Espoo Metro Arena).
