Estonian musician, singer, and songwriter Triinu Taul will perform at concerts comprised of works by Estonian composers, traditional folk music, Finno-Ugric songs, in addition to pieces from her own repertory. Taul will play the Estonian bagpipes, Jew’s harp, and Scandinavian overtone flute, with accompaniment by Estonian musicians Peeter Rebane, guitar; Henno Kelp, bassist; and Roland Puusepp, drums.
Triinu Taul was born in Mulgimaa, Southern Estonia. She is a very versatile Estonian musician and songwriter who plays different folk instruments and uses various interesting musical voice techniques. Taul thinks of music as a universal language and believes the musical sounds and messages influence us more than we assume. Taul spent her childhood in the Estonian countryside; therefore values from her rustic upbringing are reflected in her work, as well as in her being. Taul’s family has been involved with music for several generations and she started to sing and play instruments with her father in the family ensemble at a very early age. Taul went on to study classical music at the H. Eller Music School in Tartu and in 2011 she graduated from Tartu University Viljandi Cultural Academy with a Bachelor’s Degree in Folk Music. The singer has worked with different Estonian musicians and performed in several music, theater and television projects. She has also performed around the world with different folk music groups.
