Description

Estonian epic tale Kalevipoeg is written in songs, and NUKU choir is performing these old runic songs mixed with contemporary jazz, adding an ancient storytelling touch to the performance with theatrical elements. Twenty-five singers and musicians are taking you to the magical world of the ancient north, so you can experience old songs with a contemporary jazz choir sound. The songs will be in Estonian, and the narrator's text and programmes in English. NUKU choir's performance style on the stage is unique and on a good musical level at the same time. Kalevipoeg!
