Wabalinn Paide festival Kolmkõla – Music


Mari Kalkun's father is a native of Võru and mother a singer from Kihnu-Pärnu, so you may hear a forest as well as a sea in her songs.

She has drawn inspiration from nature, Estonian poetry and folk songs. In creating music, she uses a variety of musical instruments such as zither, accordion, guitar, piano, but she also likes to experiment with unusual sounds – whitsles, pipes and childhood instruments.

She has released two albums: “Üü tulõk” (2007) and „Vihmakõnõ” (2010).


Started in Paide in 2002, in eight years this merry guitar pop band has released several albums, won a heart of music critics' as well as countless people in Estonia. Keywords describing Ans. Andur's music are: simplicity, beauty, romance and it's all presented in the form of home-made in the best sense of the word.


Ensemble Ragatmika began its activity in Tallinn in 2000 and in the same year the band was awarded by music critics with a title as "the best undeground band."

During their activity of four years, two different oriented albums were published: guitar pop, flok and electronics connecting “One day this world will betray us & we will abandon it” (2002) and more into ambient music's depths diving “Katkiminekud”(2004).

After nearly 8 years of break, the band continues to make music in full-strength composition and also recording and issuing a brand new album, which should appear in the near future.


Born in Kuressaare, Saaremaa, in 1950, Tiit Kiik graduated Tallinn conservatory as a concert-organist under the guidance of Hugo Lepnurm in 1976.

He is Estonia Concert Hall's and St. Nicholas' Church organist and organ's curator since 1985.

Over time he has performed in many European countries, USA and Canada, Saaremaa's organ festival and in many other Estonian churches.


Singer and songwriter Tiiu Kiik is blessed with talent to put simple ideas and melodies ring softly, deeply and sometimes dramatically. Listeners have found that her music and fairy-like singing voice has a therapeutic effect.

With her song "Second Chance", she reached the semi-finals in 2011 Eesti Laul and the song "The One and Only – Love" reached to the finals of Eesti Laul 2010.

At the end of summer 2010, she revealed two different albums, “Lend ja tants” and “Muinasjutuline teekond”.

Tiiu has learned piano, violin and a little bit of organ at Paide Music School, music theory at Tallinn Georg Ots Music School and belonged to bands Forgotten Sunrise and Solweig.
