Kalkuni laul on tema loomingu süda - rõõm vaheldumas itkuga, kuid laulmine on alati loomulik, tasakaalukas ja meloodiline. Tema poeetilisus on tõlkimatagi ilmne. Maagiline looming.
Mari Kalkun is one of the major contributors to the Estonian folk revival. Originally coming from Võru (south-eastern part of the country), the songwriter has been celebrating the misty landscapes and traditional music of her native land. Her compositions are sonic love letters, written in the language of kannel (Estonian plucked string instrument) and heartfelt singing.
Mari Kalkun plays material from her forthcoming album Stories of Stonia, which points at a transition from the pure genre of runo songs to psych-folk and krautrock. One of the most evocative songs, myth-inspired Golden Woman, builds up with a keyboard wash and thunderous sound of zither bringing to mind the intro to Ash Ra Tempel’s eponymous album.
