The sea has inspired people for centuries. Songs of the sea have been written by different nations all over the world because the sea connects cultures and people. The sea is sung about in French chansons, Finnish tango, Portuguese fado, American blues, Napoli songs as well as Greek sirtaki. Besides music, the cabaret evening features many stories from seamen and enthralling activities for the audience.

One of Estonia’s most genuine and unique performer and composer Vaiko Eplik has been a part of several bands and written thousands of songs during his years active.

Ensemble Naised köögis
This creative collective consists of a well known Estonian-Swedish musician Sofia Joons (vocals, violin, guitar), poetess and writer Kristiina Ehin (vocals, garmon), Katrin Laidre (vocals, garmon) and Estonian folk music – regilaul – singer Kairi Leivo (vocals). The timeless creative work of this ensemble interweaves the longing for beauty and happiness from folk songs with hardships of the daily life. A random snippet of conversation heard on the street or from the table next to you can give life to a new song. The “women in the kitchen” needn’t do anything but listen in, keep their glasses and pencils nearby and to believe that life – not much unlike traditional culture – will forget about everything unimportant.
9 July at 8 pm Rannakodu Yard
Jäääär ("edge of the ice") was born on the 21st of January, 1991 in Tartu, and is noteworthy in the Estonian musical landscape not only because of its unique name. In reaction to the electronic musical tastelessness of the 80s, a group of young musicians came together to create something unique to touch their and their listeners’ souls. The resulting “urban folk”, performed on acoustic instruments, with deep and often penetrating lyrics, was an enchantingly refreshing new musical blend. From the beginning, their trademark was the extensive use of slide guitar, which in those days Tõun played using a porcelain shot glass nicked from his father’s liquor cabinet.
The sound of the band has matured and the palette of musical instruments has diversified to include: Irish tin whistles, Hawaiian lap steel guitar, pedal steel guitar, National Tricone, Weissenborn guitar, cajon, mbira and much more.

Baroque ensemble Floridante was created in January 2014 and the core of young musicians in this ensemble have all partially or fully graduated from studies in Middle European historic interpretation.
Countertenor Ivo Posti studied at the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague under Rita Dams and Barbara Pearson. He has also studied under Marius van Altena and Diane Forlano and partaken in the master classes of Taru Valjakka, Thomas Wiedenhofer, Michael Chance and Jill Feldman. Currently he is doing his masters in religious studies at the University of Tartu and working as the research department manager at Narva Museum.

Music for the soul at Uue-Jaani Farm Empowering songs by Tane Mahuta
Tane Mahuta is the Lord of the Forest according to a Maori legend. They perform fairish folk music based on Scandinavian chants, Celtic prayers, shamanic songs from the Amazon rainforests, indian bhajans, rainbow songs and traditional songs from Estonia. Most of the songs are hundreds or more years old and aimed at elevating the human soul and to connect the listeners with the forces of nature. This urban-folk has blended prayers, chants, Arabic & Celtic rythms, throat singing and beatbox paving a path for urbanised people to reconnect with Mother Nature and so also awaken to their own true nature. Instruments like the cello, guitar, shaman-drum, ocarina, French bagpipe, flutes, hang, jembe, kalimba and trumhorn along with 3 female and 3 male voices are used to create elevating and powerful music which is easy to sing along with.
