Estonian artist Maarja Nuut will be presenting her third solo album "Hinged" at Reeperbahn Festival this week.
Maarja Nuut is a singer, violinist, electronic producer and composer whose work spans a vast range of musical worlds. Classically trained and an alumnus of several prestigious music schools and institutions, she’s since delved into a number of disparate genres. Free from trends, free from being a follower, Maarja has grasped the right to be liberated right at the beginning of her unique career, when she translated the centuries-old village music of her homeland into incredibly captivating compositions on her debut EP "Soolo" (2013). Since that she’s received widespread critical acclaim alongside numerous awards, and has toured the world several times over. On her collaborative albums "Muunduja" (2018) and "World Inverted" (2020) with Hendrik Kalijujärv aka Ruum, the two created sublime maelstroms of Estonian folk music, avant-folk and electro-acoustic psychedelia.
At Reeperbahn Festival, Maarja Nuut will present her third solo album 'Hinged'. Her concert is presented by Keychange, a movement that empowers talented underrepresented genders with training, mentoring, and network support plus conferences and showcasing opportunities at partner festivals. Keychange's Estonian partner organisation is an international showcase festival and music industry conference Tallinn Music Week, that takes place from 29 Sept to 3 October.
“In Estonian, it means departed spirits and souls,” she explains, “in English, a link that holds things together. These songs are a thread between the two meanings, and a summation of a year spent exploring my family history and my place in it.”
